About this Event

Have you been interested in the Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) training program but wonder if this is for you? Are you interested in gaining introductory knowledge of this empirically supported program? If so join me for this 3hr Introductory Mindful Self-Compassion Workshop !

The Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) workshop offers an introduction to the 8 week Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) training program, which is designed to cultivate the skill of self-compassion. Based on the groundbreaking research of Kristin Neff and the clinical expertise of Christopher Germer, MSC teaches core principles and practices that enable participants to respond to difficult moments in their lives with kindness, care and understanding.

Self-compassion can be learned by anyone, even those who didn't receive enough affection in childhood or who feel uncomfortable when they are good to themselves. It's a courageous attitude that stands up to harm, including the harm that we unwittingly inflict on ourselves through self-criticism, self-isolation, or self-absorption. Self-compassion provides emotional strength and resilience, allowing us to admit our shortcomings, motivate ourselves with kindness, forgive ourselves when needed, relate wholeheartedly to others, and be more authentically ourselves.

Rapidly expanding research demonstrates that self-compassion is strongly associated with emotional well-being, less anxiety, depression and stress, maintenance of healthy habits such as diet and exercise, and satisfying personal relationships. And it’s easier than you think.

After participating in this workshop, you will learn:

-What self-compassion is and what it isn’t

-explore the link between self-compassion and well-being, from both a scientific and experiential perspective

-self compassionate skills to draw upon during times when you are struggling

What To Expect:

This workshop will include meditation, short talks, experiential exercises, and group discussion. The goal is for participants to directly experience self-compassion and learn practices that evoke self-compassion in daily life.

MSC is primarily a compassion training program rather than mindfulness training, although mindfulness is the foundation of self-compassion. MSC is also not psychotherapy insofar as the emphasis of MSC is on building emotional resources rather than addressing old wounds. Beneficial change occurs naturally as we develop the capacity to be with ourselves in a kinder, more compassionate way.

Compassion is a positive, energizing emotion. However, it is said that “love reveals everything unlike itself.” While learning self-compassion, some difficult emotions may arise. MSC teachers are committed to providing a safe and supportive environment, and to making the journey enjoyable for everyone.

Prerequisites:

No previous experience with mindfulness or meditation is required to attend this introductory MSC workshop.

Instructor: This program will be facilitated by Nicole LeBlanc (MA, MSW RSW). Nicole is a clinical Social Worker, Psychotherapist and Qualified Mindfulness teacher. She is qualified in the following mindfulness intervention approaches: Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) (University of Massachusetts, School of Medicine) and Mindfulness-Based Eating Awareness Training (MB-EAT) (developed by Dr. Jean Kristeller, co-founder of Center for Mindful Eating NH). She is currently a teacher-in-training in Mindfulness Self Compassion Training (MSC) (University of San Diego, School of Medicine).
