Mindful self-compassion 8-week course
Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) is an empirically-supported eight-week program designed to cultivate the skill of self-compassion. It was developed by Christopher Germer, PhD, a leader in the integration of mindfulness and psychotherapy (www.MindfulSelfCompassion.org) and Kristin Neff, PhD, a pioneering researcher in the field of self-compassion (www.Self-Compassion.org).
MSC combines the skills of mindfulness and self-compassion to enhance our capacity for emotional well-being. Mindfulness is the first step — turning with loving awareness toward difficult experience (thoughts, emotions, and sensations). Self-compassion comes next — bringing loving awareness to ourselves. Together, mindfulness and self-compassion comprise a state of warm, connected, presence during difficult moments in our lives.
A new eight-week Mindful Self Compassion course will begin in Hove on 1st February 2018. Please apply early as places are limited!
