MINDFUL SELF-COMPASSION with Claire Breen and Peter Powis.


MSC teaches simple effective skills and develops emotional strength to meet life’s challenges with kindness, care and understanding instead of blaming, shaming or criticizing ourselves. MSC is based on the groundbreaking research of Kristin Neff, Ph.D. and clinical expertise of Christopher Germer, Ph.D through the University of California San Diego.

The core skills of Self-Compassion develop courageous attitudes which help us stand up to harm, even the harm we may unwittingly inflict upon ourselves, through self-criticism, self-isolation or self-absorption.

Self-Compassion can be learned by anyone, even those who didn’t receive enough affection in childhood or who feel uncomfortable when they are good to themselves. It’s easier than you think!
