In the face of a threatening or unjust situation, have you ever kept silent because you didn't want to rock the boat or make things worse? And then wondered how next time, could you be stronger and more effective?

That's the purpose of The Yin and Yang of Self-Compassion. Kristin Neff, PhD, created this inspiring audio program to help you understand and build the two complementary aspects of this crucial skill:

The receptive Yin side self-compassion — how to soothe and comfort yourself when you're in pain, and rest in loving, connected presence when alone or with those you care about

The active Yang side self-compassion — how to see the truth of a situation with courage, protect yourself, and stand strong with others in the face of hostility or harm.

In the years since Kristin Neff first identified the trait of self-compassion, we now know that being kind to ourselves does not weaken us. In fact, just the opposite is true: it makes us more confident, grounded, and resilient amid crisis. Through fascinating research, stories from Kristin's own experiences as a mother and scientist, and many guided practices, you'll learn how to cultivate the full spectrum of self-compassion — to support yourself and others when it matters the most.
