When we give ourselves compassion,
we are opening our hearts in a way that can transform our lives---Kristin
Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) is an empirically supported, 8-week, training program
designed to cultivate the skill of self-compassion.
Based on the groundbreaking
research of Kristin Neff PhD, and the clinical expertise of Christopher Germer
PhD, MSC teaches core principles and practices that enable participants to
respond to difficult moments in their lives with kindness, care and
The three key components
of self-compassion are self-kindness, a sense of common humanity, and balanced,
mindful awareness. Kindness opens our hearts to suffering, so we can give
ourselves what we need. Common humanity opens us to our essential
interrelatedness, so that we know we aren't alone. Mindfulness opens us to the
present moment, so we can accept our experience with greater ease. Together
they comprise a state of warm-hearted, connected presence.
Self-compassion can be
learned by anyone, even those who didn't receive enough affection in childhood
or who feel uncomfortable when they are good to themselves. It's a courageous
attitude that stands up to harm, including the harm that we unwittingly inflict
on ourselves through self-criticism, self-isolation, or self-absorption.
Self-compassion provides emotional strength and resilience, allowing us to admit
our shortcomings, motivate ourselves with kindness, forgive ourselves when
needed, relate wholeheartedly to others, and be more authentically ourselves.
research demonstrates that self-compassion is strongly associated with
emotional wellbeing, less anxiety, depression and stress, maintenance of
healthy habits such as diet and exercise, and satisfying personal
relationships. And it’s easier than you think.
participating in this workshop, you’ll be able to:
self-compassion in daily life

difficult emotions with greater ease
challenging relationships, old and new
the art of savoring and self-appreciation
