Mindful Self-Compassion


Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC), an empirically-supported 8-week course, combines the skills of mindfulness and self-compassion to enhance our capacity for emotional well-being. MSC practices strengthen our ability to meet life’s difficulties with more wisdom, kindness, and spaciousness, allowing us to relate wholeheartedly to others and be more authentically ourselves.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is a scientifically supported program developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D. to reduce stress and increase well-being. It is thriving worldwide. Attitudes of kindness, acceptance, and patience provide a foundation for the practices of sustained focus, self-regulation, and self-exploration. A greater sense of balance, choice, and freedom is cultivated.
