Mindful Self-Compassion

MSC

What is Mindful Self-Compassion?

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.

Rapidly expanding research demonstrates that self-compassion is strongly associated with emotional wellbeing, less anxiety, depression and stress, maintenance of healthy habits such as diet and exercise, and satisfying personal relationships. And it’s easier than you think.

  • Kindness opens our hearts to suffering, so we can give ourselves what we need.

​​

  • Common humanity opens us to our essential interrelatedness, so that we know we aren’t alone.

​​

  • Mindfulness opens us to the present moment, so we can accept our experience with greater ease. Together they comprise a state of warm-hearted, connected presence.

​​

For whom is it suitable?

Self-compassion can be learned by anyone, even those who didn’t receive enough affection in childhood or who feel uncomfortable when they are good to themselves. It’s a courageous attitude that stands up to harm, including the harm that we unwittingly inflict on ourselves through self-criticism, self-isolation, or self-absorption.

Self-Compassion for Challenging Times

​ONLINE Workshop with Anja Benesch

Monday, July 13th, 2020, 19:00 - 21:00 Berlin Time (CET)
 

Mindfulness and Self-Compassion practices are providing a powerful toolbox for emotional resilience. They can help us to manage challenging situations and times of instability and uncertainty with greater moment-to-moment acceptance and respond to difficult feelings with self-kindness. This workshop offers meditations, short talks, experiential exercises/inquiry as well as practical tools for becoming a warm and supportive companion to ourselves. We will have group discussions and connect in small groups – allowing us to experience our common humanity and to feel supported. This is a warm invitation to discover Mindful Self-Compassion with two experienced teachers who have been guiding MSC programs together for some years now. 

Cost: Donation - Give what you like - no charged fee.
