Please join me for a 6-week, in person Mindful Self Compassion experience. I will be offering this course starting in September and running through October (9/5 – 10/10) on Sundays from 6:00 – 7:15 pm at the Rolling Brook Yoga Studio in Catonsville, Maryland.
The Short Course in Mindful Self-Compassion (SC-MSC) is a 6-week adaptation of the empirically supported 8-week Mindful Self-Compassion program designed to being the cultivation of the skills of self-compassion. The SC-MSC program draws on the skills of mindfulness and focuses on developing the resource of self-compassion to enhance our capacity for emotional wellbeing. Burgeoning research shows that self-compassion in strongly associated with emotional wellbeing, coping with life challenges, lower levels of anxiety and depression, healthy habits such as diet and exercise, and more satisfying personal relationships. It is an inner strength that enables us to be more fully human — more fully ourselves.
At the completion of this course, participants should be able to:
*Articulate the basic theoretical underpinnings and research findings related to self compassion
*Develop and apply self-compassion practices to motivate themselves with encouragement rather than criticism
*Develop the capacity to content with challenges and difficulties through awareness of self-kindness, common humanity and mindfulness
*Apply core self-compassion practices into daily life
This program is designed for members of the general public, based on values of equity, diversity, inclusiveness and belonging. Meditation experience is not necessary to participate in SC-MSC – all are welcome.
The cost for this offering is $180.00. More registration information can be found at Rolling Brook Yoga.
