Weekend of Mindful Self Compassion
A two-day introductory training exploring benefits and practices of Mindful Self-Compassion.
This two-day workshop provides a thorough introduction to Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC), an empirically-supported training program based on the pioneering research of Kristin Neff and the clinical perspective of Chris Germer. This content is generally taught in an 8 week format which can be difficult for people who are already trying to manage over filled schedules and busy lives. While there will be some content not included, most of the curriculum is addressed deeply in a supportive and caring environment.
In this workshop you will learn the basic skills to help you to develop Mindfulness and Self Compassion and integrate this way of relating to your daily life experiences. Through short talks, experiential activities, videos, and group discussions we will explore ways in which we react to stressful or difficult challenges in our lives. We often harshly criticize ourselves for our inadequacies or perceived failures and use negative ways to encourage or motivate ourselves. We sometimes aren’t even aware of our own suffering or ways we unnecessarily add to our suffering.
