MSC Intensives

The full eight-session MSC curriculum can be experienced in an intensive format, usually consisting of an introductory evening, four full days of training, and a final morning of training and closing. Note that intensives are primarily taught by Certified MSC teachers who have completed additional MSC teacher training. As the name suggests, an MSC intensive is a deep dive into the practice of self-compassion. While it can be emotionally challenging, concentrated practice allows you to immerse yourself more deeply in MSC and experience its transformative potential.

5 Tages-MSC-Intensive - Herrieden, Germany

Joerg Mangold

San Martino ist ein besonderer Ort; "der Erde verbunden und dem Himmel ganz nah" im Mairatal im Piemont in Italien. Es gibt abends ein wundervolles 5-Gänge-Essen. Die längere Kurszeit kommt weil es viel Zeit auf 1380 hm in einer abgelegenen Bergwelt geben soll mit freien Nachmittagen zum Wandern.
