The Compassion Revolution: Self Compassion Practices for Empowerment and Healing


Welcome one and all to another episode of Can’t Be Contained! This week I’m incredibly excited to talk compassion; more specifically, self compassion. Different from self-love, self-compassion is an act; one that has enormous transformative potential. And on top of that? It’s surprisingly easy–and takes barely any time.

I’ll cover just exactly how to transform self-hatred into self-compassion, the process of releasing energy that doesn’t serve you, ridding yourself of past burdens, and digital detoxing!

I humbly invite you to join me in this journey, where together we’ll explore the practical tools used to cultivate self-compassion into everyday life. We’ll breathe, walk, dance, and learn to reconnect with nature, as well as ourselves.

Put your headphones on and leave that negativity at the door—it’s the most compassionate episode of Can’t Be Contained yet.
