Kristin Neff: Fierce Self-Compassion Can Change Your Life, and the World

Long before self-compassion had become common parlance, DR. KRISTIN NEFF was leading pioneering research in the field. Countless studies have been published since her first groundbreaking book Self-Compassion, and today, she reshapes our understanding once more with her new release: Fierce Self-Compassion: How Women Can Harness Kindness to Speak Up, Claim Their Power, and Thrive. 

With the rise of movements like #MeToo, and the guidance of leaders like Kristin Neff, we are gradually learning to acknowledge that our self-compassion must be fierce as well as tender. “When we hold our pain with fierce, empowered truth, we can speak up and tell our stories, to protect ourselves and others from being harmed,” explains Neff. By balancing both sides of our compassion, we can unlock the rewards of lasting happiness and a healthier society.
 
Ensuring our own needs are met will also make us better leaders, employees, and caregivers by boosting productivity, tackling burnout, and tapping into our full potential. Although Neff’s messaging is geared toward women, Fierce Self-Compassion offers actionable insights for how everyone can celebrate their inner voice and liberate the fierceness of their true nature.
 
“The authoritative guide to self-compassion for women by the field’s pioneering founder and leading spokesperson. Through her science and compelling personal story, Kristin Neff shows us how and why to be kind to ourselves.” —Angela Duckworth, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Grit
