Learn to manage difficulty with more ease and kindness

Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) combines the skills of mindfulness and self-compassion to enhance our emotional well-being. While mindfulness increases our awareness of the present, self-compassion encourages greater kindness and understanding of periods of suffering. It also helps us accept our flaws and better understand our challenges.

MSC is a research-supported program developed by Dr. Kristin Neff and Dr. Christopher Germer. Research on self-compassion have shown that it boosts happiness and improves relationships while reducing anxiety, depression and shame. Increased levels of self-compassion can transform empathy fatigue into wholehearted engagement with others.

Participants Will Learn
To befriend their self–critic, develop self-compassion skills and foster goodwill towards themselves and others. The program explores typical responses as difficulties arise.

Who Should Attend
All are welcome. It is especially beneficial for graduates of mindfulness-based programs, such as MBCT/MBSR. No previous experience with mindfulness or meditation is required. This program qualifies as the prerequisite for training as a Mindful Self-Compassion teacher.

Timing
Monday to Friday Intensive
January 28 – February 1, 2019 | 8:30am – 4:30pm

Fees (including handouts and guided meditations)
Early-Bird: $725 until December 15, 2018

  • All participants must be free of substance misuse.
  • If you have third-party insurance, it may cover all or part of the cost of a therapeutic course. We recommend that you contact your insurance provider to confirm what health professions your plan covers (e.g. Psychologist, Psychotherapist, Social Worker, Occupational Therapist, Naturopath) and that this coverage includes the types of therapies in question (sometimes there are restrictions on the particular services covered by a given health profession). Please check the profession of the non-physician faculty for this program (see above), and confirm that profession is covered by your insurance and that the program is not an excluded service for that profession. Insurance receipts will be issued during the final session of the program.
