Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) is an evidence-based program that teaches how to relate to yourself with kindness, care, and support, especially when you’re stressed or upset. For many of us, that doesn’t come as easily as we might expect. Being hard on yourself may seem necessary to succeed in life, but studies suggest just the opposite: self-compassion is a more productive and healthier approach than self-criticism. A growing body of research indicates that self-compassion has many benefits, including happiness, well-being, creativity, and satisfying relationships, while experiencing less anxiety and depression.
The MSC Short Course is designed to meet the needs of busy people. We’ll cover key aspects of mindful self-compassion and practice just-in-time skills. Program activities include short talks, experiential exercises, group discussion, and home practices. The goal is to directly experience self-compassion and learn to bring it into your daily life.
