Short-Course in Mindful Self-Compassion

ABOUT

 

It's easy to like ourselves when things are going well in our lives. However when we're struggling with illness, or meeting other challenges in our lives, often our self-esteem can suffer. Self-compassion is defined as the positive self-view that encompasses relating to yourself with kindness and acceptance in times of difficulty. This course is open to all but will have an emphasis for those dealing with chronic health issues, such as cancer or pain.

Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) is an evidence-based, 8 week training program designed to cultivate the skill of self-compassion.

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

Research demonstrates that self-compassion is strongly associated with emotional well-being, less anxiety, depression and stress, and satisfying personal relationships. And it’s easier than you think!

AFTER THIS COURSE, YOU'LL BE ABLE TO:

  • Relate to yourself and your challenges in a kinder way

  • Understand the benefits of self-compassion as a way to challenge negative thinking

  • Motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticism

  • Calm your anxiety and meet difficult emotions with greater ease

  • Transform challenging relationships, old and new

  • Develop more equanimity and compassion for your body

  • Practice the art of savoring and self-appreciation

 

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