Two-Day Workshop on Mindful Self-Compassion

Posted

Description:

Join us for this two-day workshop to learn the core skills of the 8-week Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) training, an empirically-supported program designed to cultivate self-compassion using meditation, daily life practices, lecture, group exercises and discussion. Self-compassion is an emotional skill that can be learned by anyone. Recent research has shown that self-compassion greatly enhances emotional wellbeing, reduces anxiety and depression, enhances coping, promotes health behaviors, and increases motivation. This workshop is open to anyone wanting to learn essential tools for treating yourself in a respectful, compassionate way whenever you suffer, fail, or feel inadequate. This is a great way to overcome pleasing others and practicing more self-care.

 You’ll learn:

  • What self-compassion is and isn’t
  • Self-compassion practices for daily life
  • How to motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticism
  • The art of loving-kindness meditation
  • How to handle difficult emotions with greater ease
  • How to transform challenging relationships
  • How to use self-compassion in caregiving situations
  • How to enjoy your life more fully

The workshop was originally designed for professionals who want to learn skills they can integrate into their work life.  However, it is useful training for anyone who wants to develop more self-compassion in his/her personal life.  So whether you are a mental health professional or you want to use these skills for yourself, you will gain tremendous value in attending this program.
