Course Navigation

Mindful Self-Compassion is an empirically-supported, 8-session, training program designed to cultivate the skills of self-compassion. Based on the groundbreaking research and clinical work of Kristin Neff and Christopher Germer, Mindful Self-Compassion teaches core principles and practices that enable participants to respond to difficult moments in their lives with kindness, care and understanding. The program integrates cutting-edge understanding of human growth and thriving based on neuroscience, positive psychology, physiology and human development. At the same time, the Mindful Self-Compassion course teaches simple, concrete and practical skills that participants can use to support and guide themselves in their everyday lives.

Anyone can learn self-compassion, even those who didn’t receive enough affection in childhood or people who feel uncomfortable when they are good to themselves. It’s a courageous attitude that stands up to harm, including the harm that we unwittingly inflict on ourselves through self-criticism, self-isolation, or self-absorption. Self-compassion provides emotional strength and resilience, allowing us to admit our shortcomings, motivate ourselves with kindness, forgive ourselves when needed, relate wholeheartedly to others, and be more authentically ourselves.

Rapidly expanding research clearly demonstrates that self-compassion is strongly associated with increased resilience and emotional wellbeing, less anxiety, depression and stress, maintenance of healthy habits such as diet and exercise, and satisfying personal relationships. And it’s easier than you think.
