What is Mindful Self Compassion?

The practice of Mindful Self-Compassion is to be aware of our thoughts and emotions in the moment, without judgment, and to use our own kind and supportive voice for comfort.

Why learn to do this? At our core we all want a stable baseline of happiness in our life, but the simple reality is; stuff happens. Things go wrong. People upset us. Having the knowledge and skills of how to deal with difficult emotions and move on, then actually doing it…well, it’s the hardest-most rewarding work we’ll do in our lifetime.

That sounds fluffy. How do I know it will work?

Mindful Self-Compassion is based on research! A randomized, controlled trial demonstrated that MSC significantly increased self-compassion, compassion for others, mindfulness, and life satisfaction. Improvements were linked to how much a person practiced mindfulness and self-compassion in their daily lives.

High Self-Compassion is correlated with:

  • lower levels of depression, anxiety and stress,
  • productivity, innovation and creativity,
  • resilience in the face of adversity
  • better ability to make positive health changes, and
  • lower risk for alcohol and substance use disorder.
