Mindful self-compassion(MSC) is an empirically supported, eight-week training program designed to cultivate the skill ofself-compassion. Based on the ground-breaking research of Kristin Neff and the clinical expertise of Christopher Germer, MSC teaches us how to treat ourselves with kindness, care, and understanding when we are struggling.

Self-compassioncan be learned by anyone. No previous mindfulness experience is required to participate in this course. Practicing mindfulself-compassionpromotes emotional strength and resilience.

* Practice self-compassion in daily life
