Sources for Academic Research on Self-Compassion
Finding the research of Kristin Neff was like finding the treasure I had been searching for on a very long voyage! Kristin has been studying the power of self-compassion for over 15 years at the University of Texas Austin.
Here is a link to her website where she graciously shares her research and findings. Self-Compassion.org
At Harvard, Christopher Germer has also been studying the transforming power of mindful self-compassion. He and Kristin collaborate and teach together. I can’t wait to attend one of their teachings and share it with you!
And Berkley has a center called Greater Good which is focused on teaching and communicating the science behind compassion, resilience, and well-being.
I study the work of these pioneers and am inspired to teach what they have uncovered!
