Research has proven that self-compassion serves as a buffer not only to depression and anxiety,
but also to dissatisfaction and stress during difficult transitions and situations.
It’s also been shown that self-compassion is intrinsically motivating; self-kindness and mindfulness, which are important aspects of mindful self-compassion, promote proactivity and empowered action.
This workshop series leverages this evidence along with a disciplined practice toward self-care;
sharing skills and tools to bring all this goodness more into your daily life,
especially during these collective times of deep uncertainty and crisis.

Featured Sound Artist
Jo-Jo Jackson, aka "The Yogi Bassist," is a Yoga Teacher, Ayurvedic Counselor & Sound Practitioner. Her aim is to move students—& herself—on the path of self-inquiry in order to discover their highest Truth, & she encourages students to seek liberation from what is holding us back.
At a young age Jo-Jo started developing a relationship with music as her main creative outlet. Over years of practicing yoga & playing music, a natural merging of these two systems developed. Just as humans have been practicing yoga for thousands of years, people have been playing music for just as long.
While the yogi musician is not necessarily anything new, Jo-Jo’s unique experience to approaching sound from an energetic standpoint is what drives her passion for the free expression of divine Love through sound: Bhakti Yoga & Nada Yoga.
This series is offered on a sliding scale from $87 - $107
(on a first come, first serve basis)
If the available sliding scale rates are not feasible for you, feel free to reach out to us.
We have a number of scholarship spaces open.
Mindful Compassion Workshop Series (September)
There are sooo many digital offerings during this time… though my intention here is to offer a resource that may be of service to deepen our compassion for ourselves and others in some really difficult times.
Given the demand of this series thus far, we’re offering this series in September on a different day.
Leveraging my training and experience in Mindful Self-Compassion, counseling psychology, mixed media art and group facilitation, i’m grateful to bring this potent version to you, wherever you are, in collaboration with some phenomenal sound artists and healers.
Hope to see you,
