Mindful Self-Compassion 5 day Retreat Nanaimo

Mindful Self-Compassion 5 day Retreat Nanaimo

MSC teaches principles and practices that enable you (and your clients) to respond to life’s difficult moments with kindness, care and understanding.

Rapidly expanding research demonstrates that self-compassion is strongly associated with emotional wellbeing, reduced anxiety, depression and stress, maintenance of healthy habits such as diet and exercise, and satisfying personal relationships.

Self-compassion can be learned by anyone. It’s a skill that provides emotional strength and resilience, allowing us to admit our shortcomings, motivate ourselves with kindness, forgive ourselves when needed, relate wholeheartedly to others, and be more authentically ourselves.

Through talks, exercises, meditation, discussion, poetry, and short films this program shows you how to:

Practice self-compassion in daily life
Understand the science of self-compassion
Motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticism
Handle difficult emotions with greater ease
Manage caregiver fatigue
Teach self-compassion exercises to clients
This program is open to helping professionals and anyone wishing to bring more self-compassion into their life.
