Compassionate Minds: Practising self-compassion – (third of 3 opportunities – this one for gay/bisexual men)

June 20, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Are you living with HIV and ever found your compare yourself negatively with other people , or felt that you’re not good enough?

Do you sometimes feel like a failure, or criticise yourself when you make a mistake?

If you have said yes to any of these you’re not alone  – and Compassionate Minds could help you.

We have developed this self-compassion wellbeing event to help reduce these feelings, so you can feel better about yourself and lead a happier life. We’re running this event three times for different audiences:

  • Wednesday 31st May for women
  • Thursday 1st June for all genders
  • Tuesday 20th June for gay/bisexual men

Trans and non-binary people should come to the session that you’d feel most comfortable attending

All running from Noon until 5pm, with a delicious hot lunch (meat and vegetarian choices) provided by our friends at Food Chain at 1pm

Self-compassion is an integral part of emotional health, and involves treating yourself with kindness, care and support. This means relating to yourself in a similar way that you do with those you love and care for.

At the end of the wellbeing day, you will be invited to take part in either an online self-compassion course or use the new mobile app self-compassion course.

For more information or to register, contact Mina Kakaiya on 020 7791 9301 or by email Mina.Kakaiya@positiveeast.org.uk

Places are limited, so you must register in advance. If travel or care costs are a barrier to taking part, let us know. Lunch will be provided
