The Mindful Way to Self-Compassion:
Surviving & Thriving in Winter
Mindfulness enables us to develop the capacity to skillfully disengage from distressing moods and negative thoughts. Increase your self-compassion, compassion for others, mindfulness, and life satisfaction. We can apply mindfulness to the low energy times that can visit us when the days become short. As the light wanes and dark thoughts and moods intrude, we can share coping strategies with each other and read The Mindful Path to Self-Compassion by Christopher Germer, available at most bookstores. Join a group of like-minded practitioners in a supportive environment.
Through the winter meditation practice helps to calm and lift the mind and heart when it is most needed. ~Kate Wylie
