This weekend will comprise a blend of teaching, guided exercises, self-compassion practices, large and small group discussions and time for individual self-care outside of the sessions. It is a spacious and gentle exploration of the key themes and practices of MSC, offered in a format which provides a nourishing space to let go of everyday concerns and respond to your own needs with kindness. There will be periods of silence woven into the weekend timetable. Who is the event for? The weekend is for anyone who has taken a mindfulness training (eg 8-week course or equivalent) and who would like to have a restorative weekend in like-minded company exploring the world of Mindful Self-Compassion. It is also suitable for those who have already taken an MSC course and would like to refresh and nourish themselves by revisiting key principles and enjoying time to connect with others and to practice together. Requirements to attend: Participation in an 8-week mindfulness training or equivalent. An interest in learning principles and practices which offer support in living with greater self-compassion (particularly helpful for those aware of an inner critical voice at times). A wish to engage with others in a spacious and nourishing weekend of teaching and practice.
