Kristin Neff - Harness Kindness to Speak Up, Claim your Power and Thrive
Kristin Neff is an extremely well-regarded expert and pioneer in the field of self-compassion. Her most recent book is called Fierce Self Compassion: How Women can Harness Kindness to Speak Up, Claim their Power and Thrive. She discusses how self-compassion allows us to be tender with ourselves in difficult situations, but also that it sometimes needs to be fierce — like the mama bear energy that comes from a place of love, service, and a desire to reduce harm. We must, she says, act courageously to protect ourselves from harm and injustice — and to motivate necessary change in ourselves and society. Her message…women can be fierce and tender. Best quote from the book: "Tender Self-Compassion harnesses the energy of nurturing to alleviate suffering while fierce Self-Compassion harnesses the energy of action to alleviate suffering." We need both.

Not substantive enough
Enjoyed some of their content but have decided to unsubscribe after they aired the Bulletproof diet salesman. Let’s leave the nutrition advice to registered dietitians and actual researchers, not people recycling old (mostly discredited) ideas into new packages with with just-released books and online shops. Quite an unusual choice of topic for this type of podcast anyhow. I could overlook that, but there’s just not enough substantive episodes here to clog my podcast list anymore.
Love the content and guests! Great show!
