Delight in the colours and bounty of autumn and feel more spacious in the run up to Christmas.
Join fellow adventurers now we are (finally) able to meet in-person, for this 8 week Mindful Self-Compassion course, surrounded by green in the valley of St Werburghs.
Growing research demonstrates that self-compassion is strongly associated with emotional well-being, less anxiety, depression and stress as well as the maintenance of healthy habits and more satisfying personal relationships. Those connected to self-compassion demonstrate an increased ability to self-soothe and the intention to focus on feelings of warmth and reassurance towards the self during difficult times.
Developed through the combination of cutting edge research by Kristen Neff and the clinical expertise of Chris Germer, Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) combines both skills of mindfulness and self-compassion. While mindfulness increases our awareness of the present, self-compassion encourages greater kindness and understanding of periods of suffering. It also helps us accept our flaws and better understand our challenges.
During this empirically supported program, participants will learn to: motivate themselves with kindness rather than criticism, develop skills of self-compassion to manage difficult emotions, transform challenging relationships and foster goodwill and practice the art of savouring and self-appreciation.
The course will run on Thursday evenings throughout November and December with the exception of the final session which will be held on Monday 20th December.
Half day retreat to be held on Sunday November 28th.
I look forward to you joining us.
