The MSC Core Skills workshop led by Lisa Baylis and Marcia Burton allows an opportunity for people to immerse themselves in some of the key practices and exercises of the full 8-week MSC program in an intensive 2-day format.
MSC combines the skills of mindfulness and self-compassion to enhance our capacity for emotional wellbeing. MSC is an opportunity to explore how we typically respond when difficulties arise in our lives and to learn tools for becoming a warm and supportive companion to ourselves. Through talks, meditation, experiential exercises, and group discussion, you will learn how to:
• Identify the three key components of self-compassion
• Describe relevant research that supports the benefits of self-compassion
• Practice techniques to increase self-compassion in everyday life
• Use self-compassion to alleviate caregiver burnout
By connecting with your natural capacity for kindness toward suffering, you can develop healthy, enduring patterns of relating to all of life’s circumstances.
No previous experience with mindfulness or meditation is required to attend the workshop.
