Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) Program

10 week series with 2-hour sessions + one 3-hour retreat
An immersive self-care experience

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.

This course 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:

  • Practice self-compassion in daily life
  • Soothe and comfort yourself in the midst of difficulty
  • Motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticism
  • Practice loving-kindness for yourself and others
  • Handle difficult emotions with greater ease
  • Work with practices to transform challenging relationships
  • Manage caregiving fatigue
  • Practice the art of savoring and self-appreciation
  • Engage in compassionate listening

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

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.
