Hopefully this quick film we made illustrates the value of being kinder to ourselves especially during stressful times.
There is a field of work known as ‘Self Compassion’ which has its origins in Buddhism. If you are interested in finding out more about self compassion I can recommend looking into the works of Dr Paul Gilbert, Dr Kristin Neff and Dr Christopher Germer.
It was our first attempt at filming on our community reporter course. There is some background noise but hopefully the captions help diminish this. We had a great workshop on filming and editing which was led by Jon Beech of Touchstone in Leeds.
I hope you enjoy the film
