Mindful Self Compassion Adelaide
Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) 5-Day Intensive Training Adelaide
Teachers: Tina Gibson & James Bennett Levy
The Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) program teaches the skills of motivating oneself with compassion, mindfulness and kindness rather than self-criticism.This program is an intensive version of the empirically-supported, 8-week MSC program developed by Chris Germer, clinical psychologist, and Kristin Neff, a pioneer in the scientific study of self-compassion. Scientific evidence shows that self-compassion is a powerful inner resource. It enables us to address challenging conditions in our work and home lives and transform them for the better.
Rapidly expanding research demonstrates that self-compassion is associated with a wide range of positive psychological factors including enhanced motivation, a sense of wellbeing, emotional resilience, reduced stress, anxiety and depression, a stronger immune system, healthy life habits such as diet and exercise, and wisdom. Self-compassion also provides a foundation for relating compassionately with others and thereby improves our relationships.
At the completion of this program you will:
• Be able to practice mindfulness with self-compassion
• Understand what self-compassion is and isn’t
• Better manage empathy fatigue – avoiding burn out
• Gain ways to motivate yourself with encouragemenet rather than criticism
• Have strategies for living to your core values
• Techniques for handling difficult emotions with greater ease
• Understand how to transform challenging relationships
• Have completed one of the requirements for MSC Teacher Training
Have a think. If you are interested in doing MSC, or you have friends/colleagues for whom the program may be just the thing, please apply soon as we expect the places may fill quite quickly.
