Mindful Self-Compassion Core Skills: Online

July 21 - July 30

This online workshop is taught by Kristin Neff and Chris Germer, and is a fundraiser for the Center for Mindful Self-Compassion. Participants will be taught over four days (in three hour sessions) online via zoom. July 21, 23, 28 and 29, 4am-7pm Pacific time. Offering the highlights of the 8-week full MSC program, the workshop is designed to cultivate self-compassion using meditation, daily life practices, lecture, group exercises and discussion. You will be provided with essential tools for treating yourself in a kind, compassionate way whenever you suffer, fail, or feel inadequate. This workshop is relevant for the general public as well as practicing mental health professionals.

Unique to this training, participants will also be able to participate in small group sessions, including Self-Compassion Mentoring and Affinity Groups, to more deeply explore course content.

Self-Compassion Mentoring: Engage with highly trained and experienced mentors for on-the-spot learning and application of self-compassion skills and teachings. Optimize learning by attending additional interactive practice sessions between the four half-day training sessions.

Affinity Groups: Join a group of Core Skills training participants who self-identify with a particular social-cultural identity. Participants from underrepresented populations will have an opportunity to create community and discuss the course experiences and learning with others like them.

Fierce Self-Compassion workshop, Online

September 18 @ 9:00 am - September 25 @ 12:00 pm

This advanced workshop is focused on an aspect of self-compassion most people aren't familiar with - its fierce side. Whereas tender self-compassion involves “being with” ourselves in a compassionate way, fierce self-compassion involves taking action in the world to protect, provide and motivate ourselves. It means saying “no” to others who are hurting us, drawing our boundaries firmly; giving ourselves what we need to be fulfilled mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually; and motivating ourselves to reach our goals or make needed changes. This program will teach theory, research, and concrete practices from the empirically-supported Mindful Self-Compassion program, as well as new practices developed specifically to engender fierce self-compassion such as working with anger.

This course will be taught on zoom in two 3-hour sessions (Sept. 18 and 25, 2021 from 9am - 12 pm PT). It is relevant for the general public and practicing mental health professionals. Prior experience with Mindful Self-Compassion training is required. The three hour Self-Compassion Primer workshop (soon to be available as a recording at www.centerforMSC.org) fulfills this requirement.
