The Mindful Path to Self-Compassion : Freeing Yourself from Destructive Thoughts and Emotions, Paperback / softback Book

The Mindful Path to Self-Compassion : Freeing Yourself from Destructive Thoughts and Emotions Paperback / softback

Description

"Buck up." "Stop feeling sorry for yourself." "Don't ruin everything." When you are anxious, sad, angry, or lonely, do you hear this self-critical voice?

What would happen if, instead of fighting difficult emotions, we accepted them?

Over his decades of experience as a therapist and mindfulness meditation practitioner, Dr. Christopher Germer has learned a paradoxical lesson: We all want to avoid pain, but letting it in--and responding compassionately to our own imperfections, without judgment or self-blame--are essential steps on the path to healing.

This wise and eloquent book illuminates the power of self-compassion and offers creative, scientifically grounded strategies for putting it into action.

Free audio downloads of the meditation exercises are available at the author's website: www.chrisgermer.com.
