Self compassion is essential if we are to have compassion for others. It is also a powerful tool for transforming our lives, freeing us from fear and resentment and unleashing a more joyful and creative approach to life

On this retreat we'll explore, step-by-step, how to cultivate self-compassion. We'll learn to become more mindful of our own suffering, and to accept it without reacting. We'll explore how to hold our suffering in mind compassionately, and how to imbue our minds with a compassionate awareness.

Bodhipaksa has been teaching meditation since the late 1980s and was ordained into the Triratna Buddhist Order in 1993. He is the author of Wildmind: A Step-by-Step Guide to Meditation and Living as a River and is the creator of the Wildmind.org meditation website.
