Lunch & Learn: Making Growth-Oriented Meaning Through the Practice of Self-Compassion

As many of us struggle to make meaning of the suffering brought on by COVID-19, it can be helpful to question our stories. We tell ourselves stories to make meaning, but when these stories are self-critical, they become obstacles to personal growth. Put simply, we need self-compassion to have the courage to grow!

In this presentation, we will explore how the practice of self-compassion can help us make meaning that is growth-oriented, particularly in the aftermath of an adverse event. I will share the latest research on self-compassion, situating it within the existential-humanistic perspective on meaning and growth. I will also share my personal story of meaning making after cancer and suicide loss and introduce what I call a Self-Compassion Narrative. We will practice self-compassion together through a journaling exercise.

We don’t have to be stuck in self-critical storytelling! Through the practice of self-compassion, we can begin to tell growth-oriented stories that can lead us to more empowered and authentic living.
