Remember that if your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete.
~ Jack Kornfield
Are you kinder and more caring to others than you are to yourself?
How would it be to learn to treat yourself as you would a good friend?
Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) is an empirically-supported, internationally recognized, structured well-being program that is based on the ground-breaking research of psychologist Kristin Neff and the clinical expertise of psychologist Christopher Germer.
Research shows that MSC
- Reduces stress and anxiety
- Enhances emotional well-being
- Promotes resilience
- Helps people clarify core values & develop resources to live in tune with them
- Fosters healthy, positive relationships
An 8- week MSC course plus half day retreat is a comprehensive program that consists of up to 40 practices and key exercises, group discussion and reflection. It explores mindfulness and self-compassion via self-reflective exercises, small and large group discussions, and activities in a safe and supportive environment. No meditation experience is required.
Courses being offered in person in Port Elliot and online using zoom. Both starting in April 2021.

Self-compassion is simply giving the same kindness to ourselves that we give to others.
