Self Compassion

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended, 11 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Self Compassion (Paperback)
Funny, friendly and useful, this is a surprisingly challenging introduction to self love which is written in a very warm and approachable style. The author readily admits that self-love is NOT the easy option (and has plenty of anecdotes about how she is only human and screws up to), and provides the reader with the tools and encouragement to start treating themselves with the compassion that all human beings deserve.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant for survivors and their loved ones, 11 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm starting CBT therapy soon and I've used this book as a stop gap- The book itself is full of clear, friendly and sometimes painful information about what abuse is and how it can affect a survivors life, along with details about how negative thoughts are created by abusers and then maintained by survivors over the years. When it comes to the exercises, the more you put in, the more you'll get out of this. I'd also recommend this book if someone in your life is a survivor and you want to understand their experiences better

4.0 out of 5 stars Really useful, 11 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got this product to help me stay in recovery, and I've found it a clear, encouraging and challenging tool that I really should use more often. Some of the exercises will seem easy to people who have had therapy before, but if you engage with the tasks you'll surprise yourself with what you unearth and the progress you make. There's a week-by-week format that you're supposed to follow- I'll admit that I haven't followed that format, but I've found the individual worksheets and challenges helpful anyway. Best of luck!

This is exactly what the title suggests, a general tour of the outlines of tragedy, and a good introduction to the subject

5.0 out of 5 stars Great time saver, 11 Jun 2013

What I like best about this product is how short the workout is- although it feels much longer when you've been in plank position for the last twenty seconds- a really good workout to slot into your normal schedule.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ouch!, 11 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'll just add a small whimper of approval to the rest of the reviews. These workouts are REALLY hard, but they're also lots of fun, the instructions are clear, and the movements are deceptively simple to understand but boy are they a challenge to do! Highly reccomended

If you're already familiar with Buddhism you might find this series of books useful, but as a beginner I was put off by the unfriendly and unapproachable writing style and the obscure language without much guidance.

They arrived on time and in perfect condition! These dumbells are exactly what I hoped they would be- easy to grip with a nice texture, good looking, and with no plasticky smell once they'd been opened.
