This online empirically-supported 8-week MSC training program is designed to cultivate the skill of self-compassion. Based on the work of Kristin Neff, Ph.D., and Christopher Germer, Ph.D., MSC teaches core principles and practices that enable participants to respond to difficult moments in their lives with compassion, care, and understanding. The program will occur over 9 weeks to include a 4-hour silent retreat around week 5.
* That self-compassion is a skill you can learn to help you to meet life’s difficulties with both compassion and wisdom.

* How to use this path of courage to come to the difficulties in life with emotional stability and resilience and to stand with the uncertain.
* The attitudes and skills of recovering more quickly in order to move on with more ease and confidence.
