ONLINE EVENT: Mindful Self Compassion 9 Week Program
“Learn to manage difficulty with more ease and kindness”
Mud & Lotus Wellness would like to invite you to participate in a virtual (ZOOM) offering of the Mindful Self-Compassion program.
Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) is a “proven way to accept yourself, build inner strength, and thrive.” In a time when we all need something to hold us up in the flood of life and world challenges, MSC can support us to navigate it all with more ease by starting with compassion for our own challenges and difficulties!
MSC is an empirically supported 9 session program designed to cultivate the skill of self-compassion. This program was developed by Dr. Christopher Germer, PhD, a leader in the integration of mindfulness and psychotherapy and Dr. Kristen Neff, PhD, a pioneering researcher in the field of self-compassion.
Self-compassion can be learned by anyone. It fosters emotional strength and resilience, allowing one to admit to ones shortcomings, motivating oneself with kindness, forgiving oneself as needed, transforming empathy fatigue into wholehearted engagement with others and being oneself more authentically. The intention of this program is to support participants in building their well-being, resilience, and self- compassion tool box in order to meet life’s difficulties with more ease and kindness.
