Product description


“Drs. Neff and Germer are the world's leading authorities on self-compassion. They show readers in simple, down-to-earth steps how to become more confident, less self-critical, and kinder to themselves. It feels like they are with you as warm and wise guides in every page of this book. Truly a gem.—Rick Hanson, PhD, author of Resilient“Drs. Neff and Germer have led the field in researching and articulating the transformative practices of Mindful Self-Compassion, and tens of thousands of people have been trained in their approach. Now you have in your hands a workbook that can guide your journey into profound healing and freedom; it provides a pathway that is accessible, clear, and rich in its depth. Please give yourself the gift of this book and share it with others—these teachings will serve many awakening hearts.—Tara Brach, PhD, author of Radical Acceptance and True Refuge“From their extensive insight and experience, Drs. Neff and Germer provide a friendly, easy-to-use workbook. Its powerful exercises will help you uncover your innate capacity to hold yourself—and the world around you—with compassion. Whether or not you take a formal Mindful Self-Compassion course, using this workbook can effect profound change in your life.—Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness and Real Love“Mindful Self-Compassion has made me far more resilient—when a storm hits, I float on the surface of the rough sea and wait for it to pass, rather than thrashing around trying to outswim it. I am able to find a nugget of joy every day, no matter how small. This workbook encourages a deeper understanding and experience of MSC. I recommend it to everyone.—Heather R., Hampshire, United Kingdom
