    so true!! I was fortunate to take Chris Germer and Kirsten Neff’s self-compassion program at Hollyhock this past August and the practice of putting one’s hand over one’s heart truly has a nuturing, calming effect. Great article.

    Thanks, Elisha, for a moment of warmth. Will be good to keep this in my back pocket for ongoing use…

    Thank you. I have been struggling with stress, intense anxiety and depression for 4 yrs. I always put others before me. I shall try this.
