April 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Blossome Compassion Cafe

Self-Compassion Cafe

A social cafe that gives you the opportunity to learn to treat yourself with loving kindness, just like you would treat a good friend. Learn a self-compassion practice, enjoy a tasty patch mini sweet treat and meet others looking to improve their self-care too. 

In the company of other lovely people, and learn how to turn compassion inward and to care for yourself. Over a cuppa and cake, you will learn a new self-compassion practice that you can use anytime anywhere, to support your own wellbeing.

The Compassion Cafe will offers safe space for social connection, in a small group setting. Instead of being at home alone, enjoy a treat and togetherness in the community, building courage, self-love and social connections as you learn self-care and self-compassion.

Dr May Campbell Phd, our Self-compassion Teacher, will be leading this session. Your hostess is Kim Moore, who lost her husband Chris to alcohol dependency.


Self-compassion is simply the process of turning compassion inward.  We are kind and understanding rather than harshly self-critical when we fail, make mistakes or feel inadequate.  We give ourselves support and encouragement rather than being cold and judgmental when challenges and difficulty arise in our lives. Research indicates that self-compassion is one of the most powerful sources of coping and resilience we have available to us, radically improving our mental and physical wellbeing. It motivates us to make changes and reach our goals not because we’re inadequate, but because we care and want to be happy.  Source: Dr Kristin Neff 

The Compassion Cafe sessions take place at specific times and locations in and around Colchester, Essex.

7 pm for a lovely alcohol-free social evening.

Each session is designed to last 2 hours, however you can arrive and leave when it suits you. We will learn the self-compassion practice 30 minutes after the start time.

The Compassion cafe sessions are suited to everyone. We all could benefit from learning to be a bit kinder and more supportive towards ourselves. Anyone who is wanting to improve their self-care and how they feel about themselves will benefit greatly.

Patch will offer a selection of their tasty mini sweet treats. They will also be making our drinks, from their menu.
