Cultivating Seeds of Self Compassion

December 13 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Fri, December 13, 2019, 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM EST

CoLab 18 in Nova Place
100 South Commons
Pittsburgh, PA 15212

Self-compassion and self-care are necessary components of our overall well-being, and important skills to nurture in order to create more compassionate out-of-school time cultures. As educators and caregivers, we spend much of our time caring for others, but what about ourselves? When grounded in our own sense of care, we’re better able to build the emotional capacity to extend that compassion to others.

In this workshop, we’ll discuss components of social emotional learning, examine the science of self-compassion, engage in compassion based mindfulness practices, and discuss the importance of a supportive community for ourselves and others. Join APOST and our guest presenter, Tina Raspanti, for this intriguing and appropriate topic heading into the holiday season!
