Marcia Burton will introduce you to the practice of Mindful Self-Compassion, as developed by Chris Germer and Kristin Neff. The workshop will include some brief theory, followed by several experiential practices to introduce MSC. We will make time to share our experiences of the practices together.
In this workshop, you can expect to enjoy a slow paced morning to relax and gently reconnect with yourself. Together, we will use guided meditations and experiential exercises that encourage us to be more self-compassionate, and more compassionate with others. We will also briefly explore some of the barriers to being kinder to ourselves. You will learn simple yet powerful techniques that you can take away to practice on your own, and to support friends, family, and clients.
