Join Certified Teacher, Marcia Burton, for 8 consecutive half-days of Mindful Self-Compassion training and practice. In 8 half-days, participants will complete the MSC training course, as designed by Christopher Germer and Kristin Neff, and develop the tools to be kinder to yourself and others. This schedule allows participants to take time to slow down, integrate and practice self-compassion and self-care between training sessions.
Rapidly expanding research shows that self-compassion greatly enhances emotional wellbeing. It boosts happiness, reduces anxiety and depression, and can even help maintain healthy lifestyle habits such as diet and exercise. Skills are easily shared to help friends, family and clients to develop more self-compassion. It is easier than you think!

“The time will come
when, with elation,
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror,
and each will smile at the other’s welcome.”
