    Hi! My name is Marissa C. Knox. I earned a PhD in Educational Psychology at the University of Texas at Austin in May 2020 studying self-compassion with Dr. Kristin Neff. I am particularly interested in exploring how self-compassion acts as a source of resilience for healthy body image and stress management.

    I believe self-compassion is at the root of revolutionary social change. When we remember our interconnected wholeness, and honor what is true, collective liberation is possible. I am a trained Mindful Self-Compassion™ (MSC) teacher, certified Embody Love Movement facilitator, and Level 1 iRest® Yoga Nidra teacher. Nature, poetry, and music nourish my soul.

    Feel free to reach out with inquiries about workshops (online or in-person), 8-week MSC programs, and other offerings I provide. Currently based in Durham, NC.
