As we begin to emerge from the pandemic, we invite you to join us for five full days of training in Mindful Self-Compassion just 90 minutes north of Seattle. Designed especially for those who have found attending an 8-week class difficult to schedule, this 5-day residential course includes all of the content of our popular 8-week MSC program offered in a peaceful retreat setting.
In MSC you will learn:
- How to stop being so hard on yourself
- How to handle difficult emotions with greater ease
- How to motivate yourself with encouragement rather than criticism
- How to transform difficult relations, both old and new
- Mindfulness and self-compassion practices for home and everyday life
- The theory and research behind mindful self-compassion
- Tools to manage caregiver fatigue
- How to become your own best teacher
See What to Expect at Residential Courses for more information about our multi-day trainings.
