Sending and Recieving



“Self Compassion Skills Workbook”:


Picture someone—a person or an animal—with whom you feel safe and comfortable.



Let the image of that person become clear.



Write down the person you choose:



With each breath, you will alternate sending and receiving compassion.



With each in breath, imagine receiving compassion—either from this other person or from another source.



With each out breath, imagine sending compassion to this other person.



Recognize that it’s possible for both of you to receive compassion and there is no competition.



Write down the body sensations you notice: Continue this practice for at least 5 minutes.
