It feels timely during this time of the pandemic to raise awareness that we have a rich and growing community of MSC teachers in the UK.
We are a community of MSC teachers in the United Kingdom who have been meeting regularly for several years for mutual sharing, support and friendship. The idea of creating a UK network of this kind was initiated by Vanessa Hope and several of us joined with her in making this happen – we currently have a volunteer coordinating team of five and are keen for others to join us so please get in touch if we haven’t met you yet, whether you’ve taken your teacher training online or in person overseas.
Between us we organise monthly Zoom meetings for our UK community with a range of topics such as EDI, teaching online, marketing, co-teaching, social media, specialist interests etc. We have a range of potential developments in the pipeline too, such as a regular UK teachers’ practice group, a book club, and buddy arrangements.
We also have an annual networking meeting each September – previously held in London, though online last year. We’ve developed our own website with listings for teachers and courses too. Visit us at https://mindfulselfcompassionuk.com
Please do get in touch if you’d like to join our mailing list or to know more about us – it’d be great to hear from you.
