Our Approach

  • The program activities include: meditation, short talks, experiential exercises, small and large group discussions, and home practices.

  • Please look at MSC as an experiential training and not a class. The main goal is for participants to directly experience self-compassion and learn practices that evoke self-compassion in daily life.

 

Additional Information

  • The course should not be used as a substitute for psychotherapy, medication or other healthcare. If you have any queries in this regard, please discuss with your health professional before applying.

  • No previous experience with mindfulness or meditation is required to attend MSC!

  • To insure safety, participants are asked to provide background information when they register for the program. 

  • Completion:  Participants who attend at least 90% of the program will receive a certificate of completion, which is the basis for participation in further MSC training.

 

Class Preparation:

  • We recommend you give yourself 20 minutes a day to practice MSC on your own to supplement course content. 

  • 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 and feel connected 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.  

  • Various assignments will involve writing. Please bring a pen and notepad to each class.

  • We do recommend that participants read one or both of following books before or during the program (but it’s not required):

    • Self-Compassion: The Proven Power of Being Kind to Yourself, by Kristin Neff

    • The Mindful Path to Self-Compassion, by Christopher Germer

Remember that if your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete.
