Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) is an intensive 8-week training that combines the skills of mindfulness and self-compassion to provide a powerful tool for emotional resilience.

In this program we will help you get past insecurity, develop more compassion and loving-kindness towards yourself, and increase your overall peace and joy!

This program, designed by Drs. Kristin Neff and Chris Germer, is based on extensive psychological research and is being taught all around the world to help people overcome perfectionism, reduce anxiety and depression, and improve relationships.
