About Mindful Self-Compassion:​

Based on the research of Kristin Neff (www.self-compassion.org) and the clinical expertise of Christopher Germer (www.mindfulselfcompassion.org), Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) is a training program designed to cultivate the skill of self-compassion (For more information, visit https://centerformsc.org)

 

Rapidly expanding research demonstrates that Self-Compassion is strongly associated with emotional wellbeing, 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.

 

MSC teaches core principles and practices of Self-Compassion that enable us to respond to difficult moments in our life with kindness, care and understanding.

 

After participating in this workshop, 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 savouring and self-appreciation
