Mindful Self-Compassion is an opportunity to explore how we typically respond when difficulties arise in our lives, to learn tools for becoming a warm and supportive companion to ourselves. Do you struggle with challenging relationships, with caregiver fatigue? Do you find you’re strongly self-critical? Learn to offer yourself the kindness and compassion you’d offer a close friend. MSC teaches core practices that help us respond to life’s difficult moments with care and understanding. Program activities include meditation, short talks, experiential exercises, group discussion, and home practices. Research links self-compassion to emotional well-being, lower levels of anxiety, and more satisfying relationships.
