ABOUT

 

There has never been a more important time to learn practices and techniques to help cultivate stability, calm, grounding, connection, and uplift. 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 support you in meeting the range of emotions you may be feeling at this time, and beyond!

Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) is an empirically-supported, 8 week 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, and satisfying personal relationships. And it’s easier than you think!

AFTER THIS COURSE, 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 criticism

  • 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 qualifies as one of the pre-requisites for MSC teacher training.

 

WHAT TO EXPECT

 

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