Teen MSC Program Now Officially a Program of CMSC

CMSC, Karen Bluth, and Lorraine Hobbs are pleased to announce that Mindful Self-Compassion for Teens is now being solely managed and directed by CMSC. We expect that this move will provide a boost to this unique program that is already touching and inspiring teens around the globe, with over 200 MSC-T teachers having been trained thus far.

The Little Book of Self-Compassion

The Little Book of Self-Compassion by MSC Teacher, Kathryn Lovewell was born out of the desire to share the transformative power, potency and accessibility of Mindful Self-Compassion. It is intended as a deep bow to Chris and Kristin’s work and a “first step” for all those who want kindness inside, but don’t know or believe it is possible.

Last Call to Join Pilot MSC Teachers’ Practicum

Break the Cycle of Anxious Thinking and Get the Sleep You Need: Mindfulness for Insomnia

There are few things that can bring out our common humanity more than the maddening struggle with sleeplessness. Trained mindfulness expert and MSC teacher, Catherine Polan Orzech, teams up with behavioral sleep specialist, William H. Moorcroft, to offer evidence-based meditations and an four-week protocol to address the root of sleep issues.

Do You Remember?

Self-compassion doesn’t come to life in the land of concepts. It breathes in the unchartered and uncomfortable expanse of living, especially during difficult moments of life. My practice is to remember—pause, breathe, love. As it turns out, when teaching self-compassion to others, I don’t have to know what to say or say the right thing. My job is to open my heart, which opens a door. The rest is not up to me. The door is a portal and often, courageous souls walk through. 

“I Can’t Fix This, But I Can Love You.”

As teachers of MSC, our own embodiment serves as a living model for those whom we teach. In this article, Beth Mulligan shares a touching narrative written by one of her participants as his deep practice in retreat made way for his own inner ally to emerge. 

“How is Your Heart Today?”<br />Compassion at Angola Prison

Touched by the depth of caring and authentic brotherhood he found during a recent trip to Angola Prison in Louisiana, USA, Chris Germer discovered the power of self-compassion to support those suffering under the oppressive weight of shame for their crimes, their incarceration, and their inability to care for their families while in prison. So where must we go from here?

Facilitating our Flourishing Circles of Practice

The Circles of Practice also needs you! We have an incredibly dedicated team of experienced teachers who give generously of their time and talent. We want to share the enriching experience of facilitating with other experienced MSC teachers. The Circles of Practice, for the facilitators, is a valuable way to increase their skills in teaching meditation and to contribute to the effort in building a global community of MSC practitioners who come together to grow in compassion.
