Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) is a program designed by Kristin Neff, Ph.D. and Christopher Germer, Ph.D supported by years of scientific research. Self-compassion provides resilience, allowing us to acknowledge unmet needs and motivate ourselves with kindness. It cultivates a courageous attitude that stands up to harm, including the harm that we inflict on ourselves through self-criticism, self-denial, or self-absorption. The three key components of self-compassion are self-kindness, a sense of common humanity, and mindful awareness. Classes are offered on Sundays from September 5th through October 24th.
