The Change Through Compassion Core Skills Intensive is based on the Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) program developed by Kristin Neff, PhD and Chris Germer, PhD. The Change Through Compassion Core Skills Intensive provides participants with an introduction to the practices of Mindfulness and Self-Compassion and an opportunity to deepen their own wisdom through an emphasis on practice.
The Change Through Compassion Core Skills Intensive meets on Thursday 2/7 and Friday 2/8 from 6-8:30pm and Saturday 2/9 9am-4pm, with lunch provided (dietary options available). The tuition for participants is $190. We are able to offer 11 American Psychological Association – approved CE’s for attending the Core Skills Intensive, at an additional processing fee of $30.
