Why Practice Self Compassion?
Motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticism
Handle difficult emotions with greater ease
Transform challenging relationships, old and new
Practice the art of savoring and self-appreciation
Manage “caregiver fatigue"
This one-day retreat will provide an introduction to MSC: what it is, what it is not and misgivings about self-compassion. Based on the groundbreaking research of Kristin Neff and the clinical expertise of Christopher Germer, Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) teaches core principles and practices that enable participants to respond to difficult moments in their lives with kindness, care & understanding.
The day will consist of brief didactic discussion followed by practice meditations and MSC core practices and exercises and their application to daily life.
Facilitators: Barbara Smith, MFA, GIT, MS. and Mary Linda Burgess, MSW, RSW, are both trained MSC Teachers (by Kristen Neff and Chris Germer) and both have extensive experience in mindfulness practices and group facilitation.
