MSC is an 8-week training programme based on the ground-breaking research of the world’s leading self-compassion expert Kristin Neff and the clinical expertise of Chris Germer. In this programme you will cultivate the skills of self-compassion, the core principles and practices that enable you to respond to difficult moments with kindness and understanding.
Everyone is welcome - people of all backgrounds and identities can benefit from self-compassion. No previous experience with mindfulness or meditation is required to attend MSC.
Self-compassion provides emotional strength and resilience, allowing us to acknowledge our shortcomings, motivate ourselves with kindness, forgive ourselves when needed, relate wholeheartedly to others, and be more authentically ourselves.
