The full eight-session MSc curriculum can be experienced in an intensive format, five full days of training with a Certified MSC teacher who has completed additional MSC teacher training. As the name suggests, the MSC intensive is a deep dive into the practice of self-compassion. While it can be emotionally challenging, concentrated practice allows you to become deeply involved in MSC and experience its transformative potential. 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.
Participants Will Learn
