2018 Mindful Self-Compassion Training/ Summer Holiday on Salt Spring Island

Rose Petals

Sailboats 750

Come and enjoy eight days of Mindful Self-Compassion with Marcia Burton and have a holiday on Salt Spring Island this summer.

Friday pm 6 July to Friday am 13 July, 2018.

We will meet for 3 hours each day to learn and explore the practice of Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC). You can expect to enjoy a slow paced environment, to relax and gently reconnect with yourself. Together, we will use guided meditations and experiential exercises that encourage us to be more self-compassionate, and more compassionate with others. We will explore some of the barriers to being kinder to ourselves.  You will learn simple yet powerful techniques that you can take away to practice on your own, and to support friends, family, and clients.

By the end of the holiday, you will have completed the MSC Training Course, as developed by Christopher Germer and Kristin Neff, one of the pre-requisites for the MSC Teacher Training course.  (www.centerformsc.org)
