March 15, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - May 10, 2022 @ 8:00 pm UTC+5
MINDFULNESS + SELF-COMPASSION = EMOTIONAL RESILIENCE
In this online 9-week Mindful Self-Compassion course, you will learn the key principles and practices of self-compassion. Research has shown that these techniques can help improve emotional well-being and the ability to cope with life’s challenges, lead to lower levels of anxiety and depression, and increase relationship and life satisfaction. Join us to to deepen your self-awareness and start building your own self-compassion toolkit to thrive in today’s challenging environment!
The Mindful Self-Compassion curriculum was developed by by Christopher K. Germer, PhD, leader in the integration of mindfulness and psychotherapy, and Kristin Neff, PhD, pioneering researcher in the field of self-compassion.
MSC combines the skills of mindfulness and self-compassion, providing a powerful tool for emotional resilience. Mindfulness is the first step in emotional healing—being able to turn toward and acknowledge our difficult thoughts and feelings (such as inadequacy, sadness, anger, confusion) with a spirit of openness and curiosity. Self-compassion involves responding to these difficult thoughts and feelings with kindness, sympathy and understanding so that we soothe and comfort ourselves when we’re hurting. Research has shown that self-compassion greatly enhances emotional wellbeing. It boosts happiness, reduces anxiety and depression, and can even help maintain healthy lifestyle habits such as diet and exercise. Being both mindful and compassionate leads to greater ease and well-being in our daily lives.
In MSC you’ll learn:
-how to stop being so hard on yourself
-how to handle difficult emotions with greater ease
-how to motivate yourself with encouragement rather than criticism
-how to transform difficult relationships, both old and new
-mindfulness and self-compassion practices for home and everyday life
-the theory and research behind mindful self-compassion
This course’s experiential sessions teach the principles of MSC through mixed modalities, including several types of mindfulness meditation, awareness-building activities, group inquiry, readings, and more. You’ll leave the course with a toolkit of practices and exercises to help integrate mindful self-compassion into your daily life.
