Clinical psychologist, Radhule Weininger shares her powerful book, Heartwork: The Path of Self-Compassion-9 Practices for Opening the Heart. Book signing to follow.

Nine simple mindfulness practices anyone can use to generate compassion–toward oneself, others, and the world–and to live from that place of intelligent kindness in the face of life’s difficulties.

 

Compassion is the urge to understand and alleviate the suffering of another being. And if that being happens to be you, then the technique called self-compassion can be the greatest of blessings–for the compassion, you learn to apply to yourself naturally extends to all the other people in your life. With the nine simple mindfulness practices she presents here, Radhule Weininger provides a step-by-step course in self-compassion. Using stories drawn from her own life and those of others she shows that, with the right intention and practice, we can all deepen our capacity to respond skillfully to our own suffering and thus to that of others and our world.

Radhule Weininger, Ph.D., MD clinical psychologist and meditation teacher is the founder and guiding teacher of the One Dharma Sangha, as well as the resident teacher of mindfulness practice at La Casa de Maria Retreat Center in Santa Barbara, California.

Radhule has a full-time psychotherapy office for individuals and groups. Integrating psychodynamic, Jungian and Gestalt psychotherapies, she is finding innovative ways to complement Western with Buddhist psychology. For many years she has guided an ongoing dream-group, as well as an ongoing mindfulness psychotherapy group.
