The Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) 5 Day Intensive is the perfect way to learn all the remarkable tools and valuable skills to live a self-compassionate life, especially if your schedule makes it difficult to commit to the 8 week training.
The 5 day MSC Intensive training is in an empirically-supported course designed to cultivate the skill of self-compassion. It is based on ground-breaking research by Kristin Neff, integrated with the clinical perspective of Christopher Germer. MSC teaches core principles and practices that enable participants to respond to difficult moments in their lives with kindness, care and compassion.
Self-compassion can be learned by anyone. No previous meditation, mindfulness or compassion practice is required. All that is necessary is a willingness to be as open as you can; to explore MSC skills gently and at your own pace.
Training activities include formal meditation, informal practices, educational discourse, experiential exercises and group discussion. Participants will directly experience self-compassion and learn practices that evoke self-compassion in their daily life.
MSC provides emotional strength and resilience, allowing us to acknowledge our imperfections, helps us to begin motivating ourselves with kindness, learn to be more forgiving of ourselves, relate more easily to others, and live more authentically in our own skin.
Self-compassion is powerfully linked to wellbeing. It is strongly associated with fewer negative states like depression, shame and negative body image and it is strongly linked to more positive states like happiness, life satisfaction and optimism. It is also linked with better physical health.
Research by Kristin Neff demonstrates the proven benefits of Mindful Self-Compassion safely and effectively improves health by:
• enhancing emotional well-being
• building resilience
• boosting happiness
• reducing anxiety
• reducing depression
These benefits are sustained even one year after the completion of the MSC programme. We are living proof of this!
As part of the experience you will receive a beautifully bound MSC manual with all the practices and research information. You will also receive audio recordings of all the practices you learn on the course, so that you can leave knowing you have resources to help you deepen and develop your practice. Plus an exclusive bonus for all Kind Mind Academy Graduates is FREE access to a daily online practice with Kathryn and Liz with their Kind Mind Graduate Community.
