Self-Compassion: Growing resilience and perspective-taking in turbulent times
COVID-19 has brought disruption across the globe. Yet, disruption or disequilibration is a starting place in transformative learning which can produce positive change and growth. Empathy within TL is explored and the practice of empathy is situated within self-compassion. Self-compassion can support the teacher through disequilbration and assist in developing resilience and perspective-taking. Furthermore, it will support the teacher inwardly in their person and outwardly in their practice. We conclude with concrete steps to develop self-compassion.
