Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC)​ is an evidence-based training program designed to cultivate the skill of self-compassion. Based on the groundbreaking research of Dr. Kristin Neff (Ph.D.) and the clinical expertise of Christopher Germer (Psychologist), MSC teaches core principles and practices that enable participants to respond to difficult moments in their lives with kindness, care and understanding.

The cost of the course is $475 CAD plus taxes and fees.

After participating in this training, you’ll be able to:
• Practice self-compassion in daily life
• Understand the evidence-based benefits of self-compassion
• Motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticism
• Handle difficult emotions with greater ease
• Transform challenging relationships, old and new
• Manage caregiver fatigue

About the Training
• Program activities include guided meditations, short talks, experiential exercises, group discussion and practices in pairs or small groups.
• The training is based on resilience training and skills, and although it can have psychotherapeutic effects, it is not “therapy”.
• The goal is for participants to directly experience self-compassion and to learn practices that evoke self-compassion in daily life.
• The MSC training is primarily a compassion training program although mindfulness is the foundation of self-compassion.
• This training course fulfills the pre-requisite for the MSC Teacher Training.
