What is MSC?

Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) is an evidenced-based, 8-week training program based on the groundbreaking research of Dr. Kristin Neff and the clinical expertise of Dr. Christopher Germer. MSC teaches core principles and practices that enable us to respond to difficult moments in our lives with kindness, care, and understanding.

The three key components of Self-Compassion are Mindfulness, Common Humanity, and Self-Kindness. 

  • Mindfulness increases our present-moment awareness so that we can accept each experience more objectively, and with greater clarity. 

  • Common Humanity is recognizing that our emotions and struggles are universal, and part of being human. Our shared interconnectedness enables us to realize that we are not alone.

  • Self-Kindness allows us to treat ourselves as we would treat a dear friend or loved one when we experience feelings of disappointment,  inadequacy, or failure.  With Self-Kindness we are able to care for, and soothe ourselves in difficult moments.

 

Research shows that Self-Compassion is associated with greater happiness and well-being, decreased anxiety and depression, healthier lifestyle habits and improved personal relationships. AND, Self-Compassion can be learned by anyone!

In our MSC Course you will learn practices that can easily be incorporated into daily life to support greater well-being, healthier lifestyle habits, and improved personal relationships.
