Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) combines the skills of mindfulness and self-compassion to enhance our capacity for emotional wellbeing. MSC cultivates inner strength, self-acceptance, and a wider perspective of common humanity, to promote personal growth and stronger relationships with others. Join us for an hour-long introduction to these practices. We’ll provide an overview of MSC, and guide a couple of MSC practices. No previous mindfulness experience is necessary.
