ABOUT THE COURSE

The Mindful Self-Compassion Program is for anyone interested in learning skills to support themselves to be happier, less reactive, less stressed and more loving towards themselves and others.

This internationally renowned program was developed by Dr. Kristen Neff and Dr. Chris Germer with The Centre for Mindful Self-Compassion. Over 15,000 studies have shown that self-compassion greatly enhances emotional wellbeing. 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 leads to greater ease and well-being in our daily lives.

You will learn new information, skills and practices that you can use to apply your mindfulness and self-compassion skills to different areas of your life including dealing with difficult emotions and difficult people. The skills you will learn will help you in all areas of your life.

Most of us feel compassion when a close friend is struggling. What would it be like to receive the same caring attention whenever you needed it most? All that’s required is a shift in the direction of our attention—recognizing that as a human being, you, too, are a worthy recipient of compassion.

In MSC you’ll learn:

  • how to stop being so hard on yourself

  • 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 everyday life

  • the theory and research behind mindful self-compassion

  • how to become your own best teacher

    Completion of this course is a prerequisite for the MSC Teacher Training program
    developed by Dr. Kristen Neff and Dr. Chris Germer
    and offered through The Centre for Mindful Self-Compassion.
