Mindful Self Compassion for Yourself and Others 101 (MSC)

6 Sessions

 MSC has been empirically shown to improve satisfaction and happiness while decreasing stress, anxiety and depression.  Mindfulness and Compassion skills are taught, and participants mindfully learn how to recognize their difficult thoughts and feelings and better respond to them with kindness, understanding, self-soothing and self-comfort.  In this group, you will learn to: stop being so hard on yourself; handle difficult emotions with greater ease; and motivate yourself with encouragement instead of criticism.

Test how self-compassionate you are!
