An 8-Week Course in Self-Kindness, Acceptance, & Mindfulness ((dates and locations vary. Check back under Current workshops and Events) with Ann Saffi Biasetti
Self-compassion expands our capacity to soothe and heal our own pain and the pain of another. “A moment of self-compassion can change your entire day. A string of such moments can change the course of your life.” – Christopher Germer
Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) is a well-researched and effective 8-week program developed by Drs. Chris Germer and Kristin Neff. This class helps participants develop the habits of being kinder to ourselves and others, and living with more ease and well-being in our daily life. Mindful self-compassion is a first step in emotional healing. We learn to be-friend oneself, and acknowledge our difficult thoughts and feelings with a spirit of openness, curiosity and love, rather than self-judgment, or self-criticism.
Research has shown that self-compassion greatly enhances one’s overall emotional well-being. It boosts resilience, happiness, reduces anxiety and depression. MSC can be learned by anyone. It’s the practice of recognizing moments of difficulty, and repeatedly evoking good will toward ourselves. It extends cultivation of that same desire beyond ourselves to all living beings promoting good-will and healthier relationships
I wanted to let you know how each day I feel more grounded, lighter, and in the present moment than I did before the Mindful Self Compassion class. It is amazing all the “stuff” I have held onto that really wasn’t serving me, actually causing more physical and emotional difficulties within my body that didn’t need to be there.
