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.
