Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) is an evidence-based training program designed to cultivate emotional resilience through the skill of self-compassion.
The course is based on the groundbreaking research of Dr. Kristin Neff (Ph.D.) and the clinical expertise of Christopher Germer (psychologist). MSC teaches core principles and practices that enable participants to respond to difficult moments in their lives with kindness, care and understanding.
Rapidly expanding research shows that self-compassion is strongly associated with:
• Emotional wellbeing
• Less anxiety, depression and stress
• Maintenance of healthy habits such as diet and exercise
• Satisfying personal relationships.
Self-compassion can be learned by anyone, even those who didn’t receive enough affection in childhood or who feel uncomfortable when they are good to themselves. It’s a courageous attitude that stands up to harm, including the harm that we unintentionally inflict on ourselves through self-criticism, self-isolation, or self-absorption. Self-compassion provides emotional strength and resilience, allowing us to admit our shortcomings, motivate ourselves with kindness, forgive ourselves when needed, relate wholeheartedly to others, and be more authentically ourselves.
After participating in this training, you’ll be able to:
• Practice self-compassion in daily life
• Understand the evidence-based benefits of self-compassion
• Motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticism
• Handle difficult emotions with greater ease
• Transform challenging relationships, old and new
• Manage caregiver fatigue
About the Training
Program activities include guided meditations, short talks, experiential exercises, group discussion and practices in pairs or small groups.
The training is based on resilience training and skills, and although it can have psychotherapeutic effects, it is not "therapy".
The goal is for participants to directly experience self-compassion and to learn practices that evoke self-compassion in daily life.
The MSC training is primarily a compassion training program although mindfulness is the foundation of self-compassion.
This training course fulfills the pre-requisite for the MSC Teacher Training.
• Technology needs: A strong, reliable internet connection & access to a computer or tablet that is at least 10 inches. Phones or mini-tablets are not encouraged because they impede our ability to see each other during group discussions.
• Confidentiality and respect for privacy are important aspects of an MSC class. Please make sure that you are joining class from a private space.

Self-compassion is simply giving the same kindness to ourselves that we give to others.
