Mindful Self-Compassion Training


Mindful Self-Compassion Training (MSC) is an 8-week program designed to help you develop self-acceptance, kindness and connectedness with others.  MSC was developed by researchers at the Center for Mindful Self-Compassion: Kristin Neff, the pioneering researcher in the field of self-compassion and the author of Self-Compassion: Stop Beating Yourself Up and Leave Insecurity Behind; and Christopher Germer, a clinical psychologist who specializes in mindfulness and compassion-based psychotherapy (www.MindfulSelfCompassion.org) and the author of many books including A Mindful Path to Self-Compassion.


Research has shown that practising self-compassion enhances emotional wellbeing, and reduces depression anxiety and stress. Self-compassion can also enhance your motivation to stick to your goals and perform better at work.

Self-compassion can be learned by anyone, even those who didn't receive enough affection in childhood or who feel uncomfortable about being kind to themselves. It's a courageous attitude that helps to counter the harm that we unwittingly inflict on ourselves through self-criticism and perfectionistic striving. Self-compassion is not the same as self-pity or self-indulgences: it promotes emotional strength and resilience and helps us to face our difficulties, motivate ourselves with kindness, and relate more authentically with others.
