What is Mindful Self-Compassion(MSC)?
Self-compassion involves responding to difficulty with kindness & understanding so that we soothe & comfort ourselves when we’re hurting or motivating/encouraging ourselves with kindness to achieve our goals! Studies show that MSC practice increases emotional well being, self acceptance, resilience and happiness while also reducing self criticism, anxiety and tension. No experience with mindfulness or meditation is necessary!
Taking care of other people is both rewarding and challenging. It is a cliche that carregivers need to have high levels of self care so that we have capacity and space to be there for others. MSC is uniquely well suited to the needs of people whose work or daily life involves putting other people’s needs before their own: therapists, educators, counselors, coaches and even parents.This unique, small-group training (maximum six participants) is designed for people who work as caregivers and will focus on the unique demands of these roles and the needs of those who care for others. The teachers are experienced guides who will also share from their own experiences.
Ben Weinstein and Lihi Darnell are licensed psychologists and trained MSC Teachers. Learn more about us on the main page: mscthailand.org
