On the Road
Self-Acceptance with Kelly McGonigal,PhD, Kristin Neff,PhD and Tami Simon
A Two-Day Intensive for the Brain, Body, and Heart in San Diego, CA, Feb 6-7 2016
Is your inner critic the loudest voice in your mind? Is it easier for you to extend kindness and forgiveness to others than to yourself? If so, you’re not alone. Even after years of spiritual practice, self-improvement, or therapy, many of us still find self-acceptance to be the hardest challenge we face.
With Self-Acceptance: A Two-Day Intensive for the Brain, Body, and Heart, you’re invited to a weekend dedicated to helping you cultivate this essential quality. Hosted by Sounds True founder Tami Simon, this experiential workshop features two of today’s leading experts in this emerging area of study, Dr. Kristin Neff and Dr. Kelly McGonigal. Come together in a beautiful seaside setting to explore the latest scientific research on self-acceptance—and learn transformative practices for treating yourself with kindness, honesty, and love.
