There has never been a more important time to learn practices and techniques to help cultivate stability, calm, grounding, connection, and uplift. As women, now is also the time we are being called to harness the energy of fierce compassion to speak up for ourselves, and others. This course will allow you to develop the resources needed to help you to show up for yourself and support yourself in meeting the range of emotions you may be feeling at this time, and beyond! All within the supportive community of women.

Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) is an empirically-supported training program designed to cultivate the skill of self-compassion.

Self-compassion provides emotional strength and resilience, allowing us to admit our shortcomings, motivate ourselves with kindness, forgive ourselves when needed, relate wholeheartedly to others, and be more authentically ourselves.

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!


  • Practice self-compassion in daily life

  • Motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticism

  • Recognise that expressing your needs and setting healthy boundaries is an act of compassion

  • Handle difficult emotions with greater ease

  • Transform challenging relationships, old and new

  • Manage caregiver fatigue

  • Practice the art of savoring and self-appreciation


 This 8 week training officially qualifies as one of the pre-requisites for MSC teacher training.




Class activities include guided meditations, short group discussion, and home practice. Read about our past participants' experiences on Google reviews here and on Facebook here.



We'll be using the platform zoom. Laila and Lucy are both experienced online teachers and have found that this form offers a beautiful chance for people to connect deeply with the practices and group, but with all the comforts of home. Online we offer the same practices, exercises, and small group work just as you would find on our in-person courses.

As Laila is based in Texas, and Lucy in England, this course promises to have a diverse and global group - a rich part of the practice can be to understand that common humanity extends beyond seas and boundaries.
