Blooming Mental Wellbeing - MindfulSelf-Compassion (MSC)Training in Galway and Dublin

Mindfulness  & Mindful Self-Compassion approaches.
In recent years Mindfulness and indeed Compassion have been integrated from their mainly Eastern roots into Western Well Being and  therapeutic approaches, such as Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), 
Mindful Self Compassion (MSC)

Mindfulness training involves an intention to develop
our mental capacity, in a way that allows us to relate to our experience in a more skillful way, as it is happening in the current moment. It could be called going  to the Gym for our minds.

Williams et al. state  (2007.p.194) “the central message of the whole mindfulness program :to learn how to relate differently to the constantly changing patterns in the mind and the body ;to hold the recurrent patterns of both mind and body in the accepting and open hearted embrace of awareness”.

Mindful Self-Compassion
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 understanding. 
MSC training  allows us to acknowledge our self-critical inner voice and develop strategies for dealing with it, and the challenging emotions we experience in our lives.

When we give ourselves compassion, we are opening our hearts in a way that can transform our lives---Kristin Neff.
