Mindful Self Compassion Course: An 8 Week Programme An 8 week in-person Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) programme in the heart of Bristol.
About this Event

Rapidly expanding research demonstrates that self-compassion is strongly associated with emotional well-being, less anxiety, depression and stress, maintenance of healthy habits such as diet and exercise and more satisfying personal relationships.

Those connected to self-compassion demonstrate an increased ability to self-soothe and the intention to focus on feelings of warmth and reassurance towards the self during difficult times. Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) combines the skills of mindfulness and self-compassion.

While mindfulness increases our awareness of the present, self-compassion encourages greater kindness and understanding during periods of suffering. It also helps us accept our flaws and better understand our challenges.

During this empirically supported program, participants will learn to: motivate themselves with kindness rather than criticism, develop skills of self-compassion to manage difficult emotions, transform challenging relationships and foster goodwill and practice the art of savouring and self-appreciation.
