Why choose online training?

We know that self-compassion has the power to help us let go of anxiety, anger and suffering from the past, as well as to develop greater peace of mind, strength of presence, and a more open heart.

But we also know that these benefits come from practice, not just accumulating knowledge.

That is why the Foundations of Self-Compassion training is structured to help you deeply internalize self-compassion, rather than merely learning about it.

While reading a book or attending a two-day seminar can be an excellent start, most of us really benefit from having concrete support to help us put what we’ve learned into practice in our lives.

The practice of self-compassion has completely changed my life and the lives of many of my clients -- and I believe it could change yours. Sign up for a completely free 7-day trial of the FSC training and see for yourself.
