Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) is a research-backed course designed to cultivate your self-compassion skills. MSC was developed by Christopher Germer, PhD, a leader in the integration of mindfulness and psychotherapy, and Kristin Neff, PhD, a pioneering researcher in the field of self-compassion.
The class meets once a week, for 1.5 hours each week, for six weeks. Program activities include self-compassion meditations, brief talks, experiential exercises, group discussion, and home practices, all in a supportive environment. This program is designed for members of the general public. Meditation experience is not necessary to participate in MSC. All are welcome!
