This Masterclass Workshop with Chris Germer, PhD presents key principles and practices from Mindful Self-Compassion. It is also a fundraiser for our Community Program!
We offer certified courses as well as teacher training in Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC).
We work with more than 20 social service agencies and 7 healthcare partners to bring mindfulness-based interventions into underserved communities.
