Discover the benefits of Mindful Self-Compassion in a comprehensive new online format with two experienced women who have been teaching together for many years. Together we learn practices that ease stress in daily life and help us to overcome self-criticism as we learn how to motivate ourselves with friendliness. We explore how to be kind with ourselves in the face of difficult emotions and caregiving fatigue. In this process we gain emotional resilience as we deepen our experiences with effective practices to develop the skill of self-compassion.


During our weekly one and a half hour online gatherings we offer meditations, short talks, experiential exercises and inquiry as well as practical tools for becoming a warm and supportive companion to ourselves. We will have group discussions and connect in small groups – allowing us to experience our common humanity and to feel supported. Two dedicated teachers guide you through a six-week discovery journey of MSC Mindful Self-Compassion.


For a total of six weeks we meet every Tuesday evening for up to 1,5 hours via the ZOOM online platform as our practice space.
This 6-week SC-MSC online program covers a selection of essential Self-Compassion practices presented in an easily accessible format. With a total of 9 teaching hours it is shorter than the 8-week MSC program and is therefore very well suited for anyone who‘d like to take first steps in the practice of Self-Compassion under the guidance of experienced teachers and in a supportive group format.

Cost: 150€ (reduced 125€)
Refund policy: up to one week before the program starts: 0% ; up to 3 days before 50%; after that 100% of the course fee are due.
