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

The Mindful Path to Self-Compassion : Freeing Yourself from Destructive Thoughts and Emotions Hardback

Hardback

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.
