Mindful Self-Compassion

8 week course, shorter intensive formats also available

Self-compassion can be learned by anyone. No previous Mindfulness experience is required to participate in this course. Practicing Mindful Self-Compassion promotes emotional strength and resilience, which will help you motivate yourself with kindness, forgive others when needed, relate wholeheartedly to others, and be more authentic. Self-compassion is an antidote to self-criticism, self-isolation, or self-absorption.


Rapidly expanding research demonstrates that self-compassion is strongly associated with emotional well-being; less anxiety, depression, and stress; maintenance of healthy habits such as diet and exercise; and satisfying personal relationships. And it’s easier than you think. After participating in the MSC program, you’ll be able to:

  •  Practice self-compassion in daily life

  • Understand the empirically-supported benefits of self-compassion

  • Motivate yourself with kindness rather than self-criticism

  • Handle difficult emotions with greater ease

  • Transform challenging relationships, old and new

  • Manage caregiver fatigue

  • Practice the art of savouring and self-appreciation
