Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) is an 8-week program developed by Christopher K. Germer, PhD, and Kristin Neff, PhD through the Center for Mindful Self-Compassion. Research has shown that self-compassion greatly enhances emotional well-being. It boosts happiness, reduces anxiety and depression, and can even help maintain healthy lifestyle habits such as diet and exercise.
MSC is a skill that can be taught. Self-compassion allows us to relate to ourselves in a safe and non-judgmental way. During this process you will learn the connection between the mind and body, daily self-compassion skills, and mindfulness training. Self-compassion embraces an attitude of acceptance, counteracting the way we relate to ourselves, and disengaging from self-criticism. The mental space in which self-compassion creates, lends itself to the question, what do I need in this moment?
In this 8-week MSC course you will learn to
- Practice mindfulness and self compassion in your daily life
- Learn how to handle difficult situations and emotions with greater ease
- Learn how to motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticism
- Learn tools to transform challenging relationships
- Learn tools to manage caregiver fatigue
- Practice the art of savoring and self-appreciation
