Based on the Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) training which cultivates the skills of self-compassion to enable you to respond to difficult moments in your life with kindness, care and understanding. MSC is based on the groundbreaking research of Kristin Neff and the clinical expertise of Christopher Germer.
The three key components of self-compassion are self-kindness, a sense of common humanity and cultivating a balanced, mindful awareness.
Kindness opens our hearts to suffering, so we can give ourselves what we need. Common humanity opens us to others, so that we know we aren’t alone.
Mindfulness opens us to the present moment, so we can accept our experience with greater ease. Together they comprise a state of warm, connected, presence during difficult moments in our lives.
The intention of the course is to help you:
• Practice self-compassion in daily life
• Motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticism
• Handle difficult emotions with greater ease
