About the Event

Mindful Self-Compassion 8-week course

facilitated by Elizabeth H.B. Lin, MD, MPH and Joel Grow, PhD.

 

Course Description

Mindful Self-Compassion or “MSC” is a well-researched and effective 8-week program developed by Drs. Christopher Germer and Kristin Neff. This class helps participants the habits of being kinder to ourselves and others, and living with more ease and well-being in our daily life. Mindful self-compassion is a first step in emotional healing. We learn to be-friend oneself and acknowledge our difficult thoughts and feelings with a spirit of openness, curiosity, and love, rather than self-judgment, or self-criticism. In the weekly program, participants will learn through activities such as meditation, experiential exercises, short presentations, group discussion and home practices. Learning is mostly experiential and includes current theory and research on self-compassion. 

Research has shown that self-compassion greatly enhances emotional well-being. It boosts resilience, happiness, reduces anxiety and depression, and can even help maintain healthy lifestyle habits such as diet and exercise. Mindful self-compassion can be learned by anyone. It's the practice of recognizing moments of difficulty, and repeatedly evoking goodwill toward ourselves. It extends cultivation of that same desire beyond ourselves to all living beings to live happily and free from suffering.

Perhaps most importantly, cultivating self-compassion allows one to honor and accept our humanness. Things will not always go the way we want them to. We often encounter frustrations and losses. We make mistakes and bump up against our limitations, or fall short of our ideals. This is the human condition, a reality shared by us all. The more we open our heart to this reality instead of constantly fighting against it, the more we will be able to feel compassion for ourselves and all of our fellow humans.
