Kind Mind Academy Co-Founder, Head of Operations & Director of Kind Mind Publishing
Trained Mindful Self-Compassion Teacher
Liz Walker is an enthusiastic Mindful Self-Compassion teacher. She spent the first three years of her MSC experience gently deepening her personal practice whilst supporting Kathryn and their participants. Witnessing the dramatic change in her own inner landscape and the profound life-changes in the participants, Liz took up the baton to teach in 2018!
Liz is the Co-founder of Kind Mind Academy, the skilful ‘behind the scenes’ Operations Manager and queen of all things technical. She has created a unique members platform for all Kind Mind Graduates providing all the resources for Kind Minders to continue their self-compassion adventure. Liz has also curated the new KMA website, making it easier to access all the free resources for newcomers to begin their self-compassion voyage with ease.
Liz is the Director of Kind Mind Publishing, having published both The Little Book of Self-Compassion and The Voices in my Head storybook and colouring book. (Liz loves her colouring books!) She is now underway with her next ambitious project. Watch this space!
Liz is the creator of The Kindness Band™. A silicon bracelet that shares the message of self-kindness and serves as an anchor for all graduates of MSC. She has created a beautiful gift-set that invites you to “wear one and share one”. Liz hopes these bands will serve as a reminder that kindness and compassion is the key to circumnavigating the ups and downs of life. Her dream is that these bands will be available for all people in all sectors of the community to support them on their adventure called life. And Liz is proud to share that this little purple band has literally saved someone’s life.
Lovely Lizzie (as she is affectionately known by her Kind Mind Academy Community) is a grounded teacher, fun-loving and exquisitely patient both with herself and her participants. Prior to being introduced to the concepts of MSC in 2015 she had a very strong inner critic which would stop her from sharing her insights. Having supported educators for over 15 years in the well-being arena, Liz is now perfectly equipped to support all those embarking on a self-compassion programme, whether they are from the education, healthcare or the corporate sector, Liz has the experience, aptitude and understanding to guide her trainees with acuity and wisdom.
Having previously served as a hotel manager, Liz has a natural gift of providing amazing, memorable experiences for her participants, where comfort and joy are the key ingredients. She is exceptional at creating, organising and running inspirational events, in-person and online. She loves learning, laughing and having fun with all those she supports.
Liz supports Kathryn and all participants behind the scenes for all Kind Mind programmes. She co-facilitates the free Compassion Hour every Friday morning (8am UK time) to support those struggling with isolation and overwhelm during COVID and offers an extensive Graduate Programme to help sustain and nourish their practice. Liz has also ensured the smooth running of MSC Bitesize for over three years. In a nutshell, she ensures all online provision runs without a hitch!
