Mindful Self-Compassion − an 8-Week Workshop | Jan 7 - Feb 25, 2019 San Francisco, CA

Date/Time

Jan 7, 2019 to Feb 25, 2019
06:30 PM until 09:00 PM

Description

Rapidly expanding research demonstrates that self-compassion is strongly associated with emotional wellbeing, less anxiety, depression and stress, building resilience, preventing burn-out, maintaining healthy habits such as diet and exercise, and cultivating satisfying personal relationships. And it’s easier than you think.

Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) is an empirically-supported, 8-week, training program designed to cultivate the skill of self-compassion. Based on the groundbreaking research of Kristin Neff and the clinical expertise of Christopher Germer, MSC teaches core principles and practices that enable participants to respond to difficult moments in their lives with kindness, care and understanding.

After participating in this 8-week workshop, you’ll be able to:
 

Practice self-compassion in daily life

Understand the empirically-supported benefits of self-compassion

Motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticism

Handle difficult emotions with greater ease

Transform challenging relationships, old and new

Manage caregiver fatigue

Practice the art of savoring and self-appreciation
