2-Day MSC Core Skills Workshop
with Christopher Germer and Kristen Neff
Friday & Saturday, March 3 & 4, 2017 9am – 4pm
Watermark Country Club
Grand Rapids, Michigan
Kristin Neff and Christopher Germer are pioneers in the scientific development of self-compassion. They have brought their respective experience together in the empirically-supported Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) program and are providing a series of in-depth opportunities for people to immerse themselves in some of the key practices and exercises of the full 8-week program in an intensive 2-day format. Consider joining Kristin and Chris to learn from the leaders just how powerful and transformative the practice of self-compassion can be. CE credits are available for Mental Health Professionals, Nurses, and Teachers.
After participating in this workshop, you will be able to:
- Practice self-compassion in daily life
- Understand the science of self-compassion
- Motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticis
- Handle difficult emotions with greater ease
- Manage caregiver fatigue
- Practice the art of savoring and self-appreciation
- Teach simple self-compassion exercises to clients
Program activities include talks, meditation, experiential exercises, and group discussion. Participants will directly experience self-compassion and learn practices that evoke self-compassion in daily life. No previous experience with mindfulness or meditation is required to attend the program.
