The 8-week Mindful Self-Compassion program is a journey of discovering how styles of relating to ourselves contribute directly to the experience of stress. The program builds skills to interact with greater understanding, warmth and compassion; retraining the brain, and opening a door to greater freedom, ease, and peace in life.
Mindful Self Compassion is an empirically-supported program designed by Kristin Neff & Chris Germer, teaching principles and practices that enable participants to respond to difficult emotions with understanding and kindness.
Mindful Self Compassion involves balanced mindful awareness, a sense of common humanity, and self kindness.
Participants gain skills to:
– practice self compassion in daily life
– motivate themselves with kindness rather than criticism rather than kindness
– handle difficult emotions with greater ease to live life more mindfully
– manage “compassion fatigue” – ideal for care-givers and health professionals
Please note that the 8 week course will be run over a 10 week period.
