MSC Intensive in Downtown Toronto 20–114–10
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 5-day intensive explores typical responses as difficulties arise.
Who Should Attend
