Mindful Self-Compassion Course

  • CHA Center for Mindfulness and Compassion 26 Central Street Somerville, MA, 02143 United States (map)

MSC 8-Week Course: Together, mindfulness and self-compassion comprise a state of warm, connected presence during difficult moments in our lives. Mindfulness is the first step—turning with loving awareness toward difficult experience (thoughts, emotions, and sensations).  Self-compassion comes next—bringing loving awareness to ourselves. MSC is co-developed by Dr. Christopher Germer, a senior adviser of the CHA Center for Mindfulness and Compassion. For an overview of the themes for the 8 weeks of the course, accompanied with guided meditations, visit the Center for MSC websiteAll levels of experience with mindfulness and meditation are welcome.
