Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) is an empirically-supported 8-week ONLINE class designed to cultivate the skill of self-compassion. It was developed by Christopher Germer, PhD, a leader in the integration of mindfulness and psychotherapy (www.chrisgermer.com) and Kristin Neff, PhD, a pioneering researcher in the field of self-compassion (www.Self-Compassion.org).
Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) combines the skills of mindfulness and self-compassion to enhance our capacity for emotional wellbeing.
Mindfulness is the first step-turning with loving awareness toward difficult experience (thoughts, emotions, and sensations). Self-compassion comes next-bringing loving awareness to ourselves. Together, mindfulness and self-compassion comprise a state of warm, connected, presence during difficult moments in our lives.
Most of us feel compassion when a close friend is struggling. What would it be like to receive the same caring attention from yourself when you needed it most? All that's required is a shift in attention-recognizing that as a human being, you, too, are a worthy recipient of compassion.
Instructors for this course are Jamie Lynn Tatera and Dr.Karen Bluth, both certified instructors of Mindful Self-Compassion. To see more about our Instructors go to: https://selfcompassion.web.unc.edu/instructors/
