• Improve personal relationships
• Maintain healthy habits

Enjoy these researched benefits of Mindful Self-Compassion:

• Practice self-compassion in your daily life
• Improve emotional well-being
• Motivate yourself with encouragement, not criticism
• Gain a new perspective on stressful situations
• Transform difficult relationships, both old and new
• Manage caregiver fatigue
• Become your own best teacher
• Understand the theory and research behind mindful self-compassion

Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) is a program developed by Kristin Neff, the pioneering researcher in the field of self-compassion (www.Self-Compassion.org) and the author of Self-Compassion: Stop Beating Yourself Up and Leave Insecurity Behind; and Christopher Germer, a clinical psychologist who specializes in mindfulness and compassion-based psychotherapy (www.MindfulSelfCompassion.org) and the author of many books including A Mindful Path to Self-Compassion.

You will learn:

• Practice self-compassion in your daily life
• Self-compassion, a skill that can help you to meet life’s difficulties with more wisdom and kindness.
• How to offer yourself the compassion you would naturally extend to a dear friend or stranger.
• A courageous attitude of mind that will give you emotional stability and resilience to be more fully present with uncertainty so that you can recover from life’s difficulties and move on with more ease and confidence.

Research has shown that self-compassion greatly enhances emotional well-being. It boosts happiness, reduces anxiety and depression, and can even help you stick to your diet and exercise routine. All that’s required is a shift in the direction of your attention—recognizing that as a human being, you, too, are a worthy recipient of compassion.

Program activities include self-compassion meditations, brief talks, experiential exercises, group discussion, and home practices, all in a supportive environment.
