This course is a pre-requisite for MSC teacher training.

Dr. Karen Bluth and Laura Prochnow Phillips teach this 5 day intensive version of the evidenced-based 8 week Mindful Self-Compassion curriculum developed by Drs. Kristin Neff and Christopher Germer. 

Mindful Self-Compassion combines the skills and practices of mindfulness and self-compassion to increase emotional well-being. Mindfulness is the first step—turning with loving awareness toward difficult experience (thoughts, emotions, and sensations). Self-compassion comes next—bringing loving awareness to ourselves. Together, mindfulness and self-compassion comprise a state of warm, connected, presence during difficult moments in our lives.

In MSC you’ll learn to:

• Practice mindfulness and self-compassion in daily life
• Understand the science of self-compassion
• Handle difficult emotions with greater ease
• Motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticism
• Transform challenging relationships, old and new
• Manage caregiver fatigue
• Practice the art of savoring and self-appreciation
• Teach simple self-compassion skills to others

Program activities include short talks, experiential exercises, meditation, group discussion, and home practices.  MSC is 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.
