he 8-week Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) program is a journey of discovering how styles of relating to ourselves contribute directly to the experience of stress and harshness towards out own self. 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 caregivers and health professionals
