The Power of Self-Compassion: Cultivating Emotional Well-being
This workshop will introduce the key concepts and practices of Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC). MSC is a science-backed meditation practice that supports and protects mental health. Research shows self-compassion is strongly associated with emotional wellbeing. Practicing self compassion can help you cope with life challenges, lower levels of anxiety and depression, and increase healthy habits. Don’t be deceived, self-compassion is NOT about self-pity. On the contrary, this practice helps you to cultivate the inner resources to thrive, especially during difficult times.
During this workshop you will have the chance to immerse yourself in some of the foundational practices and exercises of mindful self compassion. The content of this workshop is based on the 8-week MSC program developed by Kristin Neff & Chris Germer. This workshop is offered by a Trained MSC teacher.
