Mindful Self-Compassion Course

Based on the groundbreaking research of Kristin Neff and the clinical expertise of Christopher Germer, MSC is an empirically-supported training program designed to cultivate the skill of self-compassion.

The course teaches core principles and practices that enable participants to respond to difficult moments in their lives with kindness, care, and understanding.

Beginning September 13th (skipping October 18th) from 5pm - 7:30pm in the Westlake small studio. The fee is $425.00 for course, which includes 9 sessions in 8 weeks, including a 1/2 day retreat.

Space is limited so please consider signing up early (a few scholarships will be available)!

Self-compassion can be learned by anyone, and and it provides emotional strength and resilience, allowing us to admit our shortcomings, motivate ourselves with kindness, forgive ourselves when needed, relate wholeheartedly to others, and be more authentically ourselves. Rapidly expanding research shows that increased self-compassion is strongly associated with greater emotional wellbeing, less anxiety, depression, and stress, maintenance of healthy habits such as diet and exercise, and satisfying personal relationships. And it’s easier than you think.


Please consider taking the Free Introductory Workshop on August 16th at the Westlake small studio from 7pm - 8:30pm. The workshop will be a mix of short talks, experiential exercises, discussion, and an introductory meditation. No previous experience with mindfulness or meditation is required, and you don't need to sign up in advance.
