BEAUTIFUL BRAVE PODCAST:
Self-Compassion, with Kim Fredrickson
You can now connect to Sarah’s podcasts on her personal site.
In today’s episode, I am joined by Jan Kern as my co-host for a powerful conversation with a remarkable woman—Kim Fredrickson. Kim is a sought-after speaker, writer, and counselor with expertise in cultivating self-compassion in our lives. She is the author of Give Yourself a Break: How to Turn Your Inner Critic into a Compassionate Friend and a brand new book on self-compassion for parents, which comes out this November!
Together, we explore what self-compassion really means, how it can alter our lives, and why it matters so much for leaders and parents in particular.
Kim’s story is unique in so many ways. Her insight into how to begin to entertain the idea of and practice self-compassion is also real, personal, and very practical both because of her 30-year counseling practice and because she is learning new layers of self-compassion now as she lives on oxygen support with a terminal disease.
Her story provides amazing perspective on what really matters in life and how we can become one of our own greatest friends. Listen and be inspired, friends!
