    Appreciate the discussion and the work that you do in self compassion. It’s so extremely difficult to quiet and come to peace with our self-critic! Continuing to practice self compassion can be so helpful for not only ourselves, but also for all others in our world that we directly and indirectly touch.
    Thanks Kristin

    Thank you – so much more hopeful than the negative self-talk that is so prevalent.

    I’m intrigued with the programs you are developing for teachers–MFY program. What are the plans to bring this to teachers who are not able to attend the teacher training?

    Thank you for an engaging interview and to Kristin Neff for leading the way in self-compassion. The longer I live, the more I realise it really is the key.
