book coverI invite you to check out my book, Achieving Self-Compassion:  Giving Yourself the Gifts of Happiness and Inner Peace which was inspired by what I have learned from helping others to treat themselves with loving care and my own quest to become more self-compassionate.  I hope this book fills you with an abundance of positive energy, goodwill and serenity you can relish and pass on to others to help create a better world!





Reviews for Achieving Self-Compassion:

"Nate’s work is a generous gift to those looking to love and understand themselves. The birthplace of healing is certainly self-compassion and this topic is explored in this book like no other.  This work is a collection of timeless wisdom meant to speak to the heart and soul of us all."

"The author does an excellent job at covering many of the same issues we all face when we have a lack of compassion for ourselves. My favorite is how he talks about his personal experiences overcoming life obstacles or gives examples to clarify. The book is a treasure full of gems. Thank you!"

Fortunately, we don't need to choose between being compassionate to ourselves and compassionate to others. We can do both at the same time and enjoy the rich fruits that both have to offer.”
