I have a conversation with my friend and colleague Natalie Bell, who teaches Mindfulness Self-Compassion. She shares wonderful insights on how to cultivate these tools that allow us to heal, be free from our inner critic, and be able to shift our mindset towards how we treat ourselves with greater kindness. 

 

Natalie is the founder of Mindful Wellness, a training and coaching platform to help people find their own source of calm, clarity, and inner resilience. She is the creator of the Thrive Inside Program for Personal Resilience to build an inner voice of support and compassion. As a leading teacher of mindfulness and self-compassion she works with individuals and companies teaching people to be able to manage stress and develop a system of inner support and acceptance. Natalie’s approach brings the benefits of meditation into the practical realm of our daily lives teaching us to discover calm and balance in a common sense, relatable manner.

 

With over 25 years of experience Natalie has been featured on the Today Show, Travel and Leisure, the LA Times, MSNBC Your Business, and Thrive Global for her passionate embodiment of presence and compassion. She has brought her work to Fortune 500 companies, CEOs and organizations like NBC Universal, the Milken Institute, Getty Foundation, Wharton, and many others.

 

Natalie is a faculty member of UCLA’s Mindful Awareness Research Center, MARC, as a certified mindfulness teacher. She is one of a distinguished group of certified Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) teachers and serves on the Healthcare Advisory Board of the Center for Mindful Self-Compassion working closely with MSC founders Kristin Neff and Chris Germer.
