MSC combines the skills of mindfulness and self-compassion, providing a powerful tool for emotional resilience.
Self compassion involves responding to difficult thoughts and feelings with kindness, sympathy and understanding, so that we soothe and comfort ourselves when we're hurting. Research has shown that self-compassion greatly enhances emotional well-being. It boosts happiness, reduces anxiety and depression, and can even help maintain healthy lifestyle habits such as diet and exercise. Being both mindful and compassionate greater ease and well-being in our daily lives.
MSC can be learned by anyone. It's the practice of repeatedly evoking good will toward ourselves especially when we are suffering, cultivating the same desire that all living beings live happily and free from suffering.
