I will be teaching an 8-Week Mindful Self Compassion class, in the fall, beginning on Thursday, September 12th from 4:30-7 PM in Laguna Beach. The class series will end on Thursday, October 31st. Missing a class or two is not a problem, given the Weekly Recaps and Homework Exercises.
Each of the 2.5-hour sessions (and our 4-hour retreat) during our 8 weeks together will include meditation, brief talks, experiential exercises, and group discussion — all designed to cultivate the skill of self-compassion.
The cost for the class series is $600 & $400 for those repeating the class series (a sliding fee is available for those who need it as well as a scholarship). The class series includes a weekly Recap and a Mindful Self Compassion Workbook.
MSC’s empirically-supported training program will teach you core principles and practices. Rapidly expanding research demonstrates that self-compassion is strongly associated with emotional well-being, less anxiety, depression, and stress. And self-compassion, even for those of us with a harsh inner critic, is easier to learn than you might think.
Too often we tend to meet pain and challenge with harshness and self-criticism. Self- compassion allows us, instead, to be present and courageous in the face of physical and emotional pain rather than fighting it or turning away from it.
