The Short Course in Mindful Self-Compassion (SC-MSC) is a 6-hour adaptation of the 8-week MSC programme. It has been developed to allow participants to begin to learn a targeted set of MSC practices, with less initial time commitment than the full 28-hour MSC programme. It is ideal for those who would love an introduction to self-compassion but who are tight on time. It can also be a useful stepping stone to the full 8-week MSC programme and can act as a helpful refresher to graduates of the MSC programme.
The Short Course in MSC is based on the clinical perspective of Chris Germer and the pioneering research of Kristin Neff. It can be run weekly over 6 sessions of 60 minutes (with an optional 15 minutes of Q&A afterwards), or as a 6-hour workshop. There is flexibility to customize the delivery format to meet the needs of a particular group or business.
The Short Course in MSC provides an opportunity to explore how we typically respond when difficulties arise in our lives and to learn tools for becoming a warm and supportive companion to ourselves.
This programme is for everyone! No previous experience in mindfulness, mindful self-compassion or meditation is necessary.
The course is currently run online over Zoom.
