About the Event

Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) is an evidenced-based program that combines mindfulness practices

with self-compassion to optimize our emotional well being in the face of adversity and suffering. It is an

8 week course based on the research of and core components of the Mindful Self-Compassion program

developed by Kristen Neff, PhD, and Chris Germer, PhD. We learn first the practice of Mindfulness so

that we can consciously turn towards difficult experiences, thoughts, and emotions without acceptance

and with reduced resistance. Then we learn to use various Self-Compassion skills to bring a sense of

warm, connected, loving presence during these difficult moments.

You will learn to:

Bring mindfulness and self-compassion practices into daily life

Handle difficult moments with greater ease

Motivate yourself with kindness instead of criticism

Understand the science of self-compassion and mindfulness

Build healthier more satisfying relationships

Prevent and reduce caregiver fatigue

Common Misconceptions about self-compassion

What to expect:

The program is an 8 week group learning class. Each class includes evidence-based information on

mindfulness and self-compassion, guided experiential mindfulness and self-compassion exercises, and

instructor led group discussions and reflective activities. Midway through the course there is a half day

retreat to facilitate deepening your practice of mindfulness and self-compassion. You will also receive

weekly emails corresponding with each week’s lesson with recorded guided meditations from the

instructor and a summary of what was covered that week in case you miss a class and to facilitate your

home practice. It is recommended that you practice the mindfulness and self-compassion exercises

taught for around 30 minutes a day while taking the course. Participants who attend at least 80% of the

course will receive a certificate of completion.
