Rosh Chodesh Program





Mindful Self-Compassion

Led by Heather Diamond

Sunday, April 7 at 7:30 PM

at the home of Kim Price


Research shows that being kinder to yourself brings a myriad of benefits to your emotional well-being, yet sometimes we all struggle with negative thinking and critical self-judgments.  Heather Diamond, PsyD, will lead us in a mindful self-compassion workshop, based on Kristin Neff and Christopher Germer's new book, The Mindful Self-Compassion Workbook. We'll learn accessible and thoughtful ways to change these patterns, as presented in the book, and participate in exercises to start cultivating greater self-compassion.

We have arranged for a 25% promotional discount on the book for our group! You can order the book directly through Guilford Press at  The promo code is: NF25MSC. The book is also available on Amazon and at Politics and Prose (5015 Connecticut Ave NW). Note: Starting the book before the meeting is OPTIONAL (but it is a quick read!), and the book is NOT needed to participate in the workshop.
