Pingy-Dingy Wednesday – Mindful Self-Compassion for Femmes and Beyond!

My darling femme friend, Maria Cimino, is offering an 8-week Mindful Self-Compassion class. She’ll be teaching with her colleague, Annie Allen, and the class runs in the evening from April 12 through May 30:

“Everyone is talking about how hard it is to find a therapist and basically manage mental health issues,” Maria says. “Although this is not a therapy group, it is theraputic. Mindful Self-Compassion is a skill that could benefit anyone who is trying to decrease stress and learn skillful ways to relax and be kinder to themselves. This class helps to strengthen the ‘compassion muscle,’ if you will, so that we remember our self-compassion practice when we need it in daily life. No experience necessary!”

Bonus: the class will be offered at a reduced price through March 31; if you bring a friend, you get ½ off the regular price; therapists receive 34 CEUs for attending.

Thank you, Maria and Annie, for offering gentle, kind, heartfelt healing to us all. You get one pingy-dingy!

I’m a typewriter whompin’, card catalogue lovin’ white girl from back in the day, and I yearn for a time before the covers of trade paperbacks were all squidgy, so you can imagine that I don’t actually understand what a pingback is. I do know that it can in some way be part of spreading the love, and since that’s what I’m all about at The Total Femme… every now and again of a Wednesday, I pay homage to the laughter and inspiration to be had elsewhere online. If you have a favorite, let me know and I’ll post it! Write to me at
