Course Details

  • The program integrates cutting-edge understanding of human growth and thriving based on neuroscience, positive psychology and human development. 

  • Scientific Research clearly demonstrates that self-compassion is strongly associated with...

    • Increased resilience

    • Increased emotional wellbeing

  • This version of MSC training program online includes 10 sessions on Monday evenings.

    • 9 core course sessions X 2.5 hours each (23 hours total) on Mondays at 17:30 ICT (Thailand time) starting Monday Sept. 9, 2024

    • A 2.5-hour retreat session after the 6th session

    • Plus additional practice related to Fierce Self-Compassion

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):
