April 27th @ 7PM:  Dr. Kristin Neff, renowned researcher and writer on self-compassion, will describe how a relentless pursuit of high self-esteem becomes a source of stress, anxiety and depression.  Focusing on self-compassion — that is, having compassion towards our failings and imperfections — can actually provide a greater sense of well-being. Moreover, caring for ourselves and having compassion and appreciation for our successes and failures opens the door to a more stable sense of self-esteem.

This program is co-sponsored by Ridgefield Library and Compassionate Ridgefield.
