About the Short Course in Mindful Self-Compassion (SC-MSC)
Most of us feel compassion for our close friends when they are struggling. What would it be like to receive the same caring attention from yourself when you needed it most? All that’s required is a shift in attention—recognizing that as a human being, you, too, are a worthy recipient of compassion.

The Short Course in Mindful Self-Compassion (SC-MSC) program draws on the skills of mindfulness and self-compassion to enhance our capacity for emotional wellbeing. Learn and apply informal practices for daily life.
