Self-Compassion-Concord-Massachusetts

“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire Universe, deserve your love and affection.” – Buddha

Compassion is a concept most of us know and try to apply while engaging with others. Yet, how many times have we been mean and harsh with ourselves, not extending that same compassion our way?This month is all about sharing our personal experience with self-compassion, where we thrive, when we fail and all the in betweens.

May we all learn and grow to love and extend a compassionate hand to our lifelong companion : OUR SELF.
