Mindful Self-Compassion 8-week Course


Mindful Self-Compassion or “MSC” is a research-supported 8-week training program.  It helps participants cultivate the mental and emotional habit of mindful self-compassion by learning the process of infusing our moment-to-moment experience with kindness, especially when we feel frustrated, hurt, inadequate, or overwhelmed. 

Perhaps most importantly, cultivating self-compassion means that we honor and accept our humanness. Things will not always go the way we want them to. We often encounter frustrations and losses. We make mistakes and bump up against our limitations, or fall short of our ideals. This is the human condition, a reality shared by us all. The more we open our heart to this reality instead of constantly fighting against it, the more we will be able to feel compassion for ourselves and all our fellow humans.

Research has shown that practicing self-compassion can lead to greater ease and well-being in our daily lives. It boosts resilience, happiness, reduces anxiety and depression, and can even help maintain healthy lifestyle habits. MSC can be learned by anyone; It’s the practice of recognizing moments of difficulty, and repeatedly evoking good will toward ourselves and ultimately others as well.
