Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) Workshop

Give Yourself a Break: The Power of Self-Compassion

Sunday, 20 June: 12 – 5pm BST


Due to the current Corona Virus Pandemic, we are temporally moving this event to our OnlineLive Meeting Space.

As human beings, most of us instinctively fight negative experiences and find fault in ourselves when things go wrong:
“This shouldn’t be happening! What’s the matter with me!?”

Unfortunately, this tendency just adds stress to our lives and the critical self-talk defeats us before we know what we’re doing.

But what would happen if, instead, you took a moment to calm and comfort yourself when you felt bad, just because you felt bad – much like you’d do for others? In other words, what if you learned the art of mindful self-compassion: Bearing witness to our own suffering (mindfulness) and responding with kindness and understanding (self-compassion). It’s an emotional skill that can be learned by anyone.

Our time together will include:

Simple tools for responding in a kind, compassionate way whenever we suffer, fail, or feel inadequate – essential steps toward living a happier, more fulfilling life.

  • 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
  • mindfulness and self-compassion exercises for everyday life

We will take a journey into mindfulness and self-compassion, including meditation, exercises, and discussion.

Teachings are appropriate for the general public as well as health care professionals (for details click here >>).

I came here not knowing what to expect and left with lots of gifts. This workshop has been a fantastic experience. Susann was very friendly, helpful, understanding and extremely experienced. I definitely left with newfound insights which I will be putting into practice in my life...

Opportunity to reflect…

I found it most useful to have the opportunity to reflect and be still, both in a guided way. I’m really asking myself about suffering (tend to work with other’s suffering!). I really enjoyed and taking away a lot...
