The Short Course in Mindful Self-Compassion (SC-MSC) was developed by Kristin Neff, PhD, the pioneering researcher in the field of self-compassion and Christopher Germer, PhD, a leader in the integration of mindfulness, compassion and psychotherapy. It is an adapted version of the full 8-week course in MSC.

Preparation + Commitment

  • This program is designed for members of the general public, based on the values of equity, diversity, inclusiveness, and belonging. All are welcome!

To get the most out of the experience we ask that you:​

  • Find a quiet space in your home for each class where you are least likely to be disturbed.

  • Commit to at least 15 minutes a day of home practice (if possible) between classes.
