Mindfulness-based Self-Compassion (MBSC) for working with life's difficulties with Marian Smith, MA, RCC

Eight successive Thursday evenings from 6 - 8 PM, 3263 Heather St. just West of Cambie St.
This course is best suited to those who already have some meditation experience. Based on the research of Kristin Neff and the clinical work of psychologists Christopher Germer and Tara Brach as well as the wisdom teachings of Sharon Salzberg, Michele McDonald and others, this 8-session program teaches core principles and practices that enable you to respond to life’s difficult moments with kindness, care and understanding.
Recent research demonstrates that self-compassion is strongly associated with emotional wellbeing, reduced anxiety, depression and stress, maintenance of healthy life habits such as diet and exercise and satisfying personal relationships.

Self-compassion practices teach us how to motivate ourselves with kindness rather than criticism and to handle difficult emotions with greater ease. It’s a skill we can all learn that provides emotional strength and resilience, allowing us to admit our shortcomings, forgive ourselves when needed, relate wholeheartedly to others, and be more authentically ourselves.
