Self-compassion is a tool that you can use to improve your well-being, your self-confidence, and your resilience. It’s one that we need to pay a lot more attention to in the world of pain care. What's interesting about self-compassion is that oftentimes it's easy for us to be compassionate towards others, but applying the same kindness to ourselves can be a real challenge. Moral development specialist and co-author of the book called The Mindful Self-Compassion Workbook, Dr. Kristin Neff, conducts research on self-compassion, a central construct in Buddhist psychology and one that had yet to be examined empirically. In addition to her pioneering research into self-compassion, she has developed an eight-week program to teach self-compassion skills. Dr. Neff discusses why self-compassion in pain care is important, not only for those living with chronic pain, but also for the practitioners who treat pain every day in the clinic.

Tackling about an interesting topic that does not often receive enough attention in the world of chronic pain management, Roshi Joan Halifax talks about the intersection of compassion and empathy in chronic pain care. She is the founder and head teacher of the Upaya Institute and Zen Center, and a pioneer in the field of end-of-life care. Growing up as a sick kid, her journey began by being surrounded with people who are in pain and fighting cancer. This gave her the opportunity to talk with caregivers, doctors, nurses, physical therapists, counselors, and psychotherapists. Expanding her knowledge, she has come to learn about opening the landscape of the best of our human qualities as we serve others. At the heart of this is the value of compassion and empathy—circling around the topic of pathological altruism, Edge States, empathic distress, contemplative practice, and mindfulness.

Traveling around Asia and in Tibet for a little bit, meditation expert Sean Fargo became fascinated by the simplicity of the life of Buddhist monks. Sean found a Dallas master who took him under his wing and taught him a lot of mindfulness exercises like mindfulness of walking, mindfulness of standing, and mindfulness of breathing. The combination of simplicity and difficulty and the Dallas master’s way of being was peaceful, radiant, and loving led Sean to think about devoting the rest of his life to cultivating this way of being in the world. Sean shares a brief overview of the four foundations of mindfulness, how to use mindfulness to deal with adversity or unpleasant feelings and experiences, and how to access or crack open the heart space and experience the full spectrum of human emotions which can help with both your pain and suffering.
