Drop-in Session: Take a Self-Compassion Break

Joel Grow, Ph.D.

About this Event

CCFW does not provide mental health or substance use treatment or services, nor do our mindfulness and compassion-based courses substitute for diagnosis or treatment for mental health or substance use problems such as depression, anxiety, or addiction. Find a list of mental health resources on CCFW’s resource page.


Join us to learn about Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC), an empirically-supported course that enhances our capacity for emotional well-being. MSC practices strengthen our ability to meet life’s difficulties with wisdom, kindness, and spaciousness, allowing us to relate wholeheartedly to others and be more authentically ourselves. This drop-in class will provide a quick overview of the MSC program, answer the question “What is MSC?”, and allow a chance to practice the “Self-Compassion Break”, a core practice from MSC. No experience necessary!
