Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) is an empirically-supported, 8-week training program designed to cultivate the skill of self-compassion. 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. Class activities include guided meditations, short group discussion, and home practice.
After participating in this class, you’ll be able to:
*Practice self-compassion in daily life
*Understand the empirically supported 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
*Practice the art of savoring and self-appreciation
