Event description

Description

Learn to manage difficulty with more ease and kindness

Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) combines the skills of mindfulness and self-compassion to enhance our emotional well-being. While mindfulness increases our awareness of the present, self-compassion encourages greater kindness and understanding of periods of suffering. It also helps us accept our flaws and better understand our challenges.

MSC is a research-supported program developed by Dr. Kristin Neff and Dr. Christopher Germer. Research on self-compassion have shown that it boosts happiness and improves relationships while reducing anxiety, depression and shame. Increased levels of self-compassion can transform empathy fatigue into wholehearted engagement with others.

Who Should Attend
All are welcome. It is especially beneficial for graduates of mindfulness-based programs, such as MBCT/MBSR. No previous experience with mindfulness or meditation is required. This program qualifies as the prerequisite for training as a Mindful Self-Compassion teacher as well as a prerequisite for training as a Making Friends with Yourself (MFY) teacher.

Participants Will Learn
To befriend their self–critic, develop self-compassion skills, and foster goodwill towards themselves and others. The 8-week program consisting of eight 3-hour Sessions and a 4-hour Silent Retreat explores typical responses as difficulties arise. The program fee includes handouts and guided meditation download.
