8 week course, shorter intensive formats, workshops and retreats 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 (also more effective for reaching your goals)
Handle difficult emotions with greater ease
Transform challenging relationships, old and new
Manage caregiver fatigue
Practice the art of savouring and self-appreciation
