Hi guys, My name is Stanislav. I'm doing masters in counselling psychology at McGill. I stumbled upon self-compassion when I discovered Kristin Neff's book. It immediately changed my life. I want to share my experiences and inspire you to be self-accepting and kind to yourself. I believe every single individual deserves compassion from oneself and others. As a matter of fact, being harsh and unforgiving with ourselves can be seen as pathological. I get inspiration by Kristin Neff, Tara Brach, Eckhart Tolle, and Brene Brown.
Cultivating self-compassion takes time and practice, but the results of being kind to yourself are transformative. We will be learning and practicing mindfulness as only through being mindful we can exercise self-compassion. And the most important, sharing our inner beauty and kindness with others is the way to become kind toward ourselves
The more you are kind toward yourself, the brighter the world becomes :)

The goal of spiritually-based-therapy is to produce tangible changes in your life using spirituality and modern psychotherapy tools.
It has to be clear from the get-go that the goal of this group is to produce tangible changes in your behaviours, emotional states, attitude to life, and in your thinking.
One of the spiritual techniques that we will be using is asking ourselves a question, "WHO AM I". Sri Ramana Maharshi, one of the greatest Indian sages, was telling us that this is the most important question you can ask yourself. For example, when you say, "I'm depressed" or "I'm anxious", what do you exactly mean? Is it the whole you, your whole being, that gets depressed for example, or some part of you. Are you always depressed or feelings arise in your consciousness and pass away?
To produce change, we will be using techniques from Cognitive-Behavioural therapy, Humanistic therapy, Acceptance and Commitment therapy (it helps you to clarify your values)
Last but not least, we will continue practicing self-compassion and self acceptance because these practices serve us as a foundations on which we can built or rebuilt our transformed sense of self.
The fee is $20 per session
