Mindful Self-Compassion

Upcoming Class               

January 2019


Mindful Self Mindful Compassion (MSC) is a program developed by Kristen Neff , the pioneering researcher in the field of self compassion (www.Self-Compassion.org) and the author of Self-Compassion: Stop Beating Yourself Up and Leave Insecurity Behind; and Christopher Germer, a clinical psychologist who specializes in mindfulness and compassion-based therapy (www.MindfulSelfCompassion.org) and is the author of many books including A Mindful Path to Self-Compassion.

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 also can boost happiness, reduces anxiety and depression, and can even help maintain healthy lifestyle habits such as diet and exercise. Being both mindful and self-compassionate supports greater ease and well-being in daily life.
MSC can be learned  by anyone. It's the practice of repeatedly evoking good will toward ourselves especially when we are suffering.  

In this program you will learn:

  • how to handle difficult emotions with greater ease.
  • how to motivate yourself with encouragement rather than criticism.
  • how to transform difficult relationships, both old and new.
  • mindfulness and self-compassion practices for home and every day life.
  • the theory and research behind mindful self-compassion.
  • how to become your own best teacher.

Attendance at an information meeting is required for class enrollment.
