Mindful Self-Compassion

Saturday, Apr. 29, 2017 – Saturday, Apr. 29, 2017

10:00 AM – 04:00 PM


Presented in collaboration with Compassionate Houston for Houston’s Annual Compassion Week Learn core skills associated with the Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) training, an empirically-supported program designed to cultivate self-compassion using meditation, daily life practices, lecture, group exercises, and discussion. Self-compassion is an emotional skill that can be learned by anyone. Recent research has shown that self-compassion greatly enhances emotional well-being, reduces anxiety and depression, enhances coping, promotes healthy behaviors, and increases motivation. This workshop will provide essential tools for treating yourself in a respectful, compassionate way whenever you suffer, fail, or feel inadequate.
