Join Nancy Santamaria, a member of the Saint John Vianney Center’s Spiritual Care Department, as she explores the topic of Self-Compassion that it may help enrich our lives, build our resilience and creative problem solving, and help to sustain our compassion for others. Stating the work of Kristin Neff, Ph.D. and others, Nancy mentions that it takes practice to accept the inner critic whose harsh voice comes forward when we feel we have failed or made a mistake, or when we are stressed from life’s challenges, and that it is through the practice of Self-Compassion, we can strive to become more fully human and more loving and caring.  Click here to listen.
