Donation Event: Tender and Fierce Compassion with Ali Lambie
October 18, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm BST
In order to be truly self-compassionate – in order to be whole – we need to integrate both aspects of self-compassion, the ‘tender’ and the ‘fierce’. If we are tender without fierceness, we risk becoming disempowered; if we are fierce without tenderness, we risk becoming hostile or selfish. Like a tree with a solid trunk and flexible branches, we need to stand strong while still embracing others as part of an interdependent whole. We need love in our hearts so we don’t cause harm, but we also need fierceness in our bellies to stand up to harm. This workshop will offer an experiential exploration of both the tender and fierce aspects of self-compassion.
This event is offered in collaboration with the Mindfulness Network Community Friends (MNCF) – an initiative to engage the wider mindfulness community and reach new audiences. Led by a Committee of Volunteers, supported by the Mindfulness Network, we work together to run a programme of donation-based events and inspiring content. You are welcome to visit the Community Friends area of our Community site, which is open to all, for more opportunities to practice and learn together: https://community.mindfulness-network.org/course/view.php?id=72
The workshop will take place online using Zoom from 7 – 8.30 pm UK time
