Course Navigation

This course will aim to teach participants to:
• Practice self-compassion, mindfulness and loving kindness in daily life
• Understand, experientially, the empirically-supported benefits of self-compassion
• Motivate oneself with kindness rather than criticism
• Handle difficult emotions with ease
• Transform destructive emotional patterns and challenging relationships
• Approach difficult relationships with equanimity
• Practice the art of self-appreciation

This MSC intensive will involve eight 2.5 to 3 hour training sessions and one 3-4 hour silent retreat focused completely on individual practice. The morning sessions are scheduled from 9.30am till 12.30pm and the afternoon sessions, for the most part, will be 2pm till 5pm. There may be exceptions on Sunday afternoon (22/4/18) when we may finish a little later due to having a retreat and on Monday afternoon (23/4/18) when the afternoon will be scheduled as free time. Though participation in the whole intensive is recommended, it will be possible to attend just Friday 20/4/18 till Sunday the 22/4/18 (3 days) with an option to complete the course at a later date. In addition, even though it is not normally part of MSC, on this intensive Lisa will be offering an optional yoga session from 8.00am till 9.00am every morning over the five days of this MSC intensive.
