Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC)

Eight Week Online Mindful Self Compassion (MSC) Course

Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) is an empirically supported training program designed to cultivate the skills of self-compassion and mindfulness. MSC has been developed from the innovative research of Kristin Neff and the clinical expertise of Christopher Germer.

The three key components of MSC are: self-kindness, a sense of common humanity and mindful awareness. Research demonstrates that self-compassion is strongly associated with reductions in stress, anxiety and depression. It has also shown that MSC increases emotional wellbeing and the maintenance of healthy habits.

This course will aim to teach participants to:

Practice self-compassion, mindfulness and loving kindness in daily life
Understand, experientially, the empirically-supported benefits of self-compassion
Motivate oneself with kindness rather than criticism
Handle difficult emotions with ease
Transform destructive emotional patterns and challenging relationships
Approach difficult relationships with equanimity
Practice the art of self-appreciation
MSC is suitable for anyone who wishes to cultivate these skills. Professionals from health and education often attend MSC courses, as this training is helpful to prevent burnout and enhance wellbeing.

MSC sessions include meditation training and practice, short talks, experiential exercises, small and large group discussion, optional mindful-compassion movement and home practices.

For those wishing to follow the MSC Teacher Training pathway, this course counts as a pre-requisite.
