A 6-week adaptation of the popular evidence-based 8-week Mindful Self-Compassion program for those who wish to learn the fundamental principles and skills of self-compassion but are time-limited.
In the MSC program, participants will meet as a group with a teacher(s) for 1.5 hours once a week for 6 weeks. Participants will learn and apply the three key components of self-compassion using meditation, short talks, experiential exercises, group discussion, and home practices. Participants will be provided materials (digital handouts and audio) to support what they are learning in the weekly sessions and for use during home practice.
MSC is primarily a compassion training program with mindfulness as the foundation of self-compassion. The intention of the MSC program is to provide a safe and supportive environment for exploring how we typically respond when difficult emotions arise and to provide tools for becoming warm and supportive companions to ourselves. Please keep in mind that although self-compassion can be very therapeutic, it is different from conventional group or individual therapy whereby the emphasis of the program is on utilizing resources of self-compassion and mindfulness through a process of self-discovery.
No previous experience with mindfulness or meditation is necessary to attend MSC. This program is designed for anyone who is time-limited and wishes to integrate and cultivate greater self-compassion into their lives and/or work.
