Mindful Self-Compassion Program

2023 dates to be announced.

Many of us are tired.

Join us for the empirically-supported Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) program to pause, rest and reflect, and to gently expand your capacity to navigate life’s many ups and downs with a bit more compassion, wisdom and ease.

Course Details

This course is the empirically supported Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) program, developed by Drs. Kristin Neff and Chris Germer.

It includes 23 hours of training and practice. It is an immersive exploration of self-compassion, offering highlights of relevant research and theory, self-compassion meditations and exercises, discussions, and a retreat — with time between sessions to apply what you learn about self-compassion to your own life.

Course Objectives
The course aims to help participants to:

  • Customize on-the-spot practices to use for yourself (while in meetings or at work, with family or with friends).
  • Recognize and validate your own needs.
  • Soothe and comfort yourself in the midst of difficulty.
  • Balance what you give and receive in professional and personal roles.
  • Take designated time and space for you to restore energy.
  • Customize compassion and mindfulness practices for daily life and for greater well-being.
  • Soften self-criticism, explore motivation with less fear of failure, and more…

Attending the MSC course is a prerequisite for MSC teacher training and for the Self-Compassion in Psychotherapy Certificate Program offered through the Center for Mindful Self-Compassion.
