Self-Compassion involves acting the same way towards yourself when you are having a difficult time, fail, or notice something you don’t like about yourself. Instead of just ignoring your pain with a “stiff upper lip” mentality, you stop to tell yourself “ this is really difficult right now” How can I care for myself at this moment?”
In this episode, I was joined by Dr.Jodi Larry, Naturopathic Doctor and the founder of Rituwell to talk about how to cultivate self-compassion and build shame resilience and the importance of putting practices and rituals into place. We can’t just stop at awareness, if we stop there, it will continue to show up in our lives and with our relationship with others.
In this episode we will learn:
- What happens in our brains specifically in the amygdala when we are experiencing shame, and how to tend to this part of ourselves
- How to recognize the ways in which shame operates in our lives, by knowing this, we begin to liberate ourselves.
- Understand the triggers that cause us to go into a shame spiral and how to give it love
- The practices that we need to put into place on a daily basis to work with our shame and practice self-compassion
