What is MSC?

Mindful Self-Compassion 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 Chris Germer, MSC core principles and practices enables participants to respond to difficult moments in their lives with kindness, care and understanding.

Rapidly expanding research demonstrates that Mindful Self-Compassion is strongly associated with emotional well-being, less anxiety, depression and stress, maintaining of healthy habits such as diet and exercise, and satisfying personal relationships.

So, if you would like to learn to be less harsh on yourself (perhaps even treat yourself as nice as you would treat a dear friend) and become better to manage various relationships and life in general, then perhaps this course is for you? 

Self-Compassion can be learned by anyone, even those who didn’t receive enough affection in childhood or who feel uncomfortable when they are good to themselves. It’s a courageous attitude that stands up to harm, including the harm that we unwillingly inflict on ourselves through self-criticism, self-isolation, or self-absorption. Self-Compassion provides emotional strength and resilience, allowing us to admit our shortcoming, motivate ourselves with kindness, forgive ourselves when needed, relate wholeheartedly to others and be more authentically ourselves.
