Providers Thriving Together — Self–compassion: Your (not-so-secret) Superpower

February 6, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us for the Providers Thriving Together series. These free monthly virtual drop-in sessions provide a facilitated space to experience camaraderie and peer support in the service of activating our collective resilience. Each month, presenters—usually rural peers from around the province—will share practices, frameworks or ideas they’ve found useful. Sessions will prioritize time for exploring these themes in both small and large groups.



Self-compassion: Your (not-so-secret) Superpower

Discover how self-compassion can connect us to others and support resilience.



  • What is the difference between empathy and self-compassion?
  • What is the difference between tender and fierce self-compassion?
  • Participants will leave with an actionable item where they can begin to integrate self-compassion in their own lives



Presenters: Drs. Jennifer Baxter & Shireen Mansouri

Facilitator: Dr. Rahul Gupta
