What did our  previous Self-Compassion Heroes  say?

Did you feel more self-compassionate, inspired, and nurtured
energised at the end of the project?

YES I did. I felt so much more aware of opportunities for self-connection and tending. I also felt uplifted by all the diverse sources that Sharon recommended to gives us ideas and tools for practicing self-compassion.

‘I will more time for play, song, dance, and LAUGHTER,  I’ve also noticed that I’m realizing how harsh I can be with myself, and I’m seeing a new light in my day for being more aware of all the things I can do and what I appreciate about myself.

I think Sharon did a standout job weaving in everyone’s input during the live sessions and in the group into our activities and conversations. 

I liked how the creative activities gave me a chance to do things other than what I would
normally do to nurture myself. I loved all the talks!  I had the experience of not knowing what I needed until I watched them. Thank you. I think they were all equally beneficial – each one was what I needed at the time.  I loved theme singing exercises to release tension from the jaw, tongue, and other areas of the face. I also liked the breath work, it felt very gentle and unimposing. I loved being able to sing along!  Just getting the voice and breath moving were so helpful.

I was touched by the interaction on the whatsapp group; I didn’t know if I would get involved, but it turned out to be a great resource for me. Gosh, there are so many neat ideas in the playdates there too.

The course was great value.  I’m so glad I took the leap  of faith and went for it, not really knowing what I was signing up for .

What surprised me about the project was the continuity of support throughout the week. I wasn’t expecting the consistency of interaction. I also was happy to see how much poetry was woven into the project, which inspired me to reconnect with this resource. I also wasn’t expecting the consistent feedback and replies from Sharon in the whatsapp group – that was very supportive!

Thank you so much Sharon for bringing your heart and smile to every aspect of the project. Just seeing you on camera and hearing your voice in the talks and other materials were a source of upliftment and helped me recommit to my true path of healing. Thank you for seeing, honouring, and receiving me. I was so touched by the depth and sincerity of you care and attention. I hope the new year gifts us many more opportunities to be together. ‘ 

Taylor, Thank you for helping me feel the music of letting go and letting be! I really enjoyed the chakras  work as well, and the playtime activities you poured your soul into. It really helped me feel permission to take up more room in my own voice and body. 

‘Oh, my goodness  Polly, you really closed out our course with a slam. Your voice and guidance were such healing instruments, exactly what I needed to receive. I felt alive and reconnected to something precious inside me. I hope I have the opportunity to work with you again in the future.’ 

Shruti, USA

‘Didnt know what to expect but loved the mixture of the levity and the depth – you have such an uplifting presence and a lovely mix of people’   Georgianne Scotland
