Mindfulness Self Compassion

The Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) program will be presented by Linda Hamilton and Deborah Burns, Mindful Self Compassion teachers.

Research has shown 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.

Most of us feel compassion when a close friend is struggling. What would it be like to receive the same caring attention whenever you needed it most? All that’s required is shift in our attention—recognizing that as a human being, you, too, are a worthy recipient of compassion.
