This 12 minute secular self-compassion practice is an opportunity to give space to check in with ourselves and notice our emotions and needs. There is an invitation to notice what is coming up and to accept whatever arises with kindness and self-compassion. We recognise that our needs are important and we give space to get in touch with what these needs are. Engaging in this practice over time may increase our emotional awareness. This means that we can use our emotions to identify our needs, and respond accordingly, rather than being subconsciously driven by emotional reactivity.
