Santa Monica
This program is for students who have completed the 8-week Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) class.

6-Week Follow-up Course in Mindful Self-Compassion
Join other graduates to deepen your practice to bring self-compassion alive in your own life. This class offers an extended opportunity to deepen our practice and integrate it more fully into our everyday life.

Together, we will:
  • Find ourselves in a moment of difficulty
  • Remember that this is in the nature of human-ness, aliveness
  • Offer ourselves the kindness we might offer a loved one

We will start each class with formal meditations, and then address the issue for the week. In the process, we will address questions about actually practicing MSC when at work, with our families, friends, and others.

There will be short written exercises, small and large group discussion. This class promotes give-and-take between members, to address living dilemmas we can all learn from. Homework will be suggested each week.

Weekly Topics
  • Welcome back to Mindful Self-Compassion: Where are you now? What brings you to class?

  • Going forward with our top tools for Mindful Self-Compassion

Research has shown that self-compassion greatly enhances emotional well-being. It boosts happiness, reduces anxiety and depression, and can even help you stick to your diet and exercise routine. All that's required is a shift in the direction of your attention--recognizing that as a human being, you, too, are a worthy recipient of compassion.

There are six weekly classes.
