“Emotional Resilience Through the Practice of Compassion”

Listen here…

Show Notes


Compassion builds emotional resilience, a trait we want for our children and ourselves (and for the world, as a whole).

But how do we encourage compassionate behaviors and mindsets? Mindfulness practices, of course!

This episode of Mindful Conversations with KAY explores the critical importance of compassion and empathy in our children’s growth.

Kelly and Kristi explore compassion by discussing:

  • How mindfulness practices counteract the destructive results of feeling shame and guilt
  • Modeling self-compassion for your children’s benefit
  • Using the Heart Hold gesture to physically stimulate self-compassion
  • Making partner poses and group activities a practice in empathy and compassion
  • Literature that reinforces compassion
