Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) is an empirically-supported 8-week course designed to cultivate the skill of self-compassion with which we can work with difficult emotions. The inner critic’s voice can often rob us of our self-confidence and inner peace. Participants learn to respond to difficult moments with kindness, understanding, and self-care. This powerful tool helps us develop emotional resilience and enhances emotional well being.

Based on the ground-breaking work of Christopher Germer, PhD, a leader in the integration of mindfulness and psychotherapy, and Kristen Neff, PhD, a pioneering researcher in the field of self-compassion

Benefits include lower levels of anxiety and depression, more satisfying personal relationships, and greater happiness.

In MSC you’ll learn to:

Practice mindfulness and self-compassion in daily life
Understand the science of self-compassion
Use self-compassion to live in accord with your values
Handle difficult emotions with greater ease
Motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticism
Work with challenging relationships
Manage caregiver fatigue
Practice the art of savoring and self-appreciation
Teach simple self-compassion skills to others

This program is designed for members of the general public. Meditation experience is not necessary to participate in MSC. All are welcome!

Program activities include discussion of topics, experiential exercises, meditation, small group interaction, and home practices. MSC is an opportunity to explore how we typically respond when difficulties arise in our lives and to learn tools for becoming a warm and supportive companion to ourselves.

Fee: $500 for 8-week series and half day retreat; includes recordings of guided meditations and notebook.
