The Center for Mindful Self-Compassion (CMSC) is a nonprofit global advocate for self-compassion education. CMSC was originally founded in 2012 by the developers of MSC, Christopher Germer and Kristin Neff, and is now an international nonprofit organization. 

Vision Statement: We aim to be the global leader in self-compassion training and to offer the highest quality programs to diverse populations, based upon scientific research and established teaching methods. CMSC is committed to building an equitable, inclusive, and caring global community supporting the practice of self-compassion where each person matters and everyone belongs. 

Our Mission: Our purpose is to alleviate human suffering and improve the collective well-being of the planet through the practice of self-compassion. 

We welcome team members of varied backgrounds, perspectives, and goals, who are deeply committed to compassion education and well-being. We strongly encourage individuals from traditionally underrepresented communities to apply to join our team as we are actively seeking applicants who will add diversity to our organization.

Currently we have no open positions available. Thank you for your interest.
