Comments about Self Compassion:
A very interesting and thought provoking book - a bit more substantial than many in the self help genre. Some excellent advice on how to care for both oneself and others.
A beautiful book that helps us all see the way to cure the world - one person at a time - starting with yourself. Read it and start the journey.
