Dedicated to Sharing Self-Compassion Around the World

The Center for Mindful Self-Compassion is a nonprofit global advocate for compassion education. CMSC was founded in 2012 by clinical psychologist, Dr. Christopher Germer, and self-compassion researcher, Dr. Kristin Neff.

This course is life changing and I loved every moment of it. It’s like a box of life long loving tools.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Alexander G.

I was completely amazed by the idea of finally being kind to myself, of recognizing what is really going on within and noticing I am not alone in my suffering. (This) was beyond transformative.

Laura G.

Thanks for such a great opportunity. I never really saw how incredibly, incredibly critical of myself I am….but that I could also learn to silence the inner critic.
