MSC 5 day intensive
CANCELLED Yet to be rescheduled
Teachers: Certified MSC Teachers Kathleen Cator & Anna Friis
Invest in five days of relaxation and peace, with nutritious meals and tranquil surrounds, while learning skills and practices that will enhance your life and/or professional practice.
Self-compassion is offering ourselves the same care, kindness and understanding that we would offer a good friend. With self-compassion we can motivate ourselves with encouragement, forgive ourselves when needed, face and befriend our shortcomings, care for others while caring for self, and live more authentically. Research shows that self-compassion is strongly associated with emotional well-being, lower levels of anxiety and depression, healthy habits such as diet and exercise, and more satisfying personal relationships.
And, self-compassion is a skill that can be learned and cultivated by anyone through Mindful Self-Compassion Training.
This training is an intensive skills building program over 5 days and 4 nights. It is a condensed version of the eight- session, empirically supported Mindful Self-Compassion training developed by Christopher Germer and Kristin Neff. MSC is an experiential journey — an adventure in self-discovery and self-kindness — and includes meditation, short talks, experiential, practical exercises and group discussions.
