MSC Online for 2SLGBTQIA+

March 16, 2024 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm UTC+0

Mindful Self-Compassion MSC is an empirically supported program based on the groundbreaking research of Christopher Germer (PhD) and Kristin Neff (PhD).

MSC helps you turn towards yourself with kindness and understanding, become your own best friend and ally, and learn to build a warm-hearted response to your daily experience, especially during difficult times. The program will include practical components such as meditations, exercises, movement and group discussions that help you cultivate your inner resource of compassion.

This application of the Mindful Self-Compassion program addresses the needs of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community as it offers an environment of belonging. We as members of the community (no allies, please) learn about and practice self-compassion together and begin to explore the two sides of self-compassion – tender and fierce – and to see how they apply to our lives as 2SLGBTQIA+ folks.
