Mindful Self-Compassion and Meditation

at The Retreat Farm Holistic Living Centre 2020

Online streamed sessions Thursday evenings 8pm to 9pm

Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) is an ongoing program designed to cultivate the skill of self-compassion. MSC teaches core principles and practices that enable participants to respond to difficult experiences in their lives with kindness, care and understanding. Three key components of self-compassion are: self-kindness, a sense of common humanity, and balanced, mindful awareness. Together they comprise a state of warm-hearted, connected presence.

Self-compassion 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.

Benefits of developing Mindful Self-Compassion include:

Increase in emotional wellbeing.

Decrease in anxiety depression and stress.

Handle difficult emotions with greater ease

Motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticism

Help to manage caregiver fatigue

Transform challenging relationships, old and new

Practice the art of savoring and self-appreciation


What To Expect

In a safe, supportive environment, this program includes meditation, short talks, individual experiential exercises and home practices. The goal is for participants to directly experience self-compassion and learn practices that evoke self-compassion in daily life.  Self-compassion can be learned by anyone and is important for everyone. No previous experience with mindfulness or meditation is required to attend MSC online sessions.
