Gentle and Fierce—Two Sides of Self-Compassion That We All Need Now

A vast body of research shows that the skill of self-compassion can deeply calm and heal us. But there's also a fierce "momma bear" side of self-compassion. And all of us—especially women—need it more than ever.

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, did you wonder: "Next time, how can I become stronger and more effective?"

That's the purpose ofThe 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 receptiveYin 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 activeYang 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 and her colleagues first identified the trait of self-compassion, we’ve learned 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 key guided practices, you'll learn how to cultivate the full spectrum of self-compassion—to support yourself and others when it matters the most.

Kristin Neff, PhD, is an Associate Professor at the University of Texas at Austin and a practitioner in the Insight Meditation tradition. She is the author ofSelf-Compassion: The Proven Power of Being Kind to Yourself. A true pioneer in the field, over 15 years ago she first identifiedself-compassion as a measurable trait, and now there are over 2000 published studies on its benefits. Kristin is a cofounder of the Center for Mindful Self-Compassion, and gives talks and teaches workshops on self-compassion worldwide. In addition to her research, she has developed an eight-week program to teach self-compassion skills called Mindful Self-Compassion. The program, co-created with her colleague Chris Germer, has been taken by tens of thousands of people worldwide. Kristin and Chris recently co-authoredThe Mindful Self-Compassion Workbook, an immediate bestseller. Learn more at
