2nd February – 23rd March 2021
Tuesdays, 6.30 – 9pm (GMT)
Retreat half day Sat 6th March (time TBC)
There has never been a more important time to learn practices and techniques to help cultivate stability, calm, grounding, connection, and uplift. This course will allow you to develop the resources needed to help support you in meeting the range of emotions you may be feeling at this time, and beyond!
Come join qualified MSC teachers Mel Wraight and Dr Lucy Chan who are both incredibly experienced in offering courses, retreats and self-compassionate spaces both in-person and online. They share a commitment to nurturing safe and inclusive spaces, and have found that practising online offers a beautiful chance for people to connect deeply with the practices and group, but with all the comforts of home.
Whilst they are both based in the UK, anyone from across the country (and the world!) is welcome – a rich part of the practice can be to understand that common humanity extends beyond seas and boundaries.
Mel (they/them) has been teaching mindfulness and self-compassion to individuals, groups and businesses for 8 years. They trained at Bangor Centre for Mindfulness and with Kristin Neff and Chris Germer in teaching Mindful Self-Compassion. Also a psychotherapist in practice for 23 years Mel holds group spaces with safety, skill, humour and compassion. Mel also facilitates LGBTQIA+ international mindfulness spaces. They are a founder of Stillpoint Mindfulness.
Lucy (she/her) teaches mindfulness, self-compassion and Buddhism internationally. She is part of a nationally acclaimed team delivering mindfulness for burnout retreats, and has been trained directly by the internationally renowned pioneers of self-compassion Kristin Neff and Chris Germer. She also works as a doctor in the NHS; self-compassion practices helped her meet the challenges of a stressful job and her passion is to help others incorporate these practices into their lives.
