This offering is an intensive version of the empirically-supported 8-week Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) program, which combines the skills of mindfulness and self-compassion to enhance our capacity for emotional wellbeing. It is the only full version of the program that Kristin Neff (along with Chris Germer) is teaching this year, and it will be in person! Program activities include short talks, experiential exercises, meditation, group discussion, and home practices. MSC is an opportunity to explore how we typically respond when difficulties arise in our lives and to learn tools for becoming a warm and supportive companion to ourselves.
This program is designed for members of the general public. Meditation experience is not necessary to participate in MSC. All are welcome!
