Join us for the empirically-supported Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) program for an immersive self-care experience. Explore healing practices of compassion, self-compassion and mindfulness in a small, supportive community.

Attending the MSC course is a prerequisite for MSC teacher training and for the Self-Compassion in Psychotherapy Certificate Program offered through the Center for Mindful Self-Compassion.
