MSC teaches core 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.
Are you passionate about emotional well-being and would like to learn more about the combined skills of mindfulness and self-compassion? Do you wish to cultivate self-compassion skills for daily life? Have you dreamed of immersing yourself in a unique culture in Africa or Asia and engaging deeply with local and international colleagues? Would you like to be part of helping local clinicians and professionals to experience more of MSC and to support them in learning to share the program and the practices with the people most in need of it in their community?
CMSC and GEI invite professionals and students interested in Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) to join a unique training retreat. International delegations travel to a developing country in Africa or Asia to engage with local professionals and enjoy an MSC intensive course. Every person who signs up to attend, will allow two local people to also participate in the program, thereby meeting the main pre-requisite for attending MSC Teacher Training in the future. 2018 destinations include Vietnam and Kenya.
