This listing is for one person to attend the Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) 9-week class via Zoom, every Tuesday evening in June and July from 5:30 pm-8 pm MST.
Enrollment closes 05/24/21 at 11:59 PM MST and space is limited to 18 people.
This class will be taught by Becky Farley, Mindful ArtCo Cofounder, and Ashley Kuchar, PhD Candidate - both are trained MSC teachers and have researched with and been mentored and taught by Kristin Neff and Chris Germer, the scientific founders of the Mindful Self-Compassion Program.
After taking this class you will be able to:
practice self-compassion in daily life
understand the empirically-supported benefits of self-compassion
handle difficult emotions with greater ease
motivate yourself with encouragement rather than criticism
transform challenging relationships, both old and new
manage caregiver fatigue
practice the art of savoring life and self-appreciation
What to Expect During the Course
Course activities include meditation, short talks, experiential exercises, group discussion, and home practices. The goal is for participants to experience directly self-compassion and to learn practices that evoke self-compassion in daily life. MSC is a training program that emphasizes strengthening the capacity to be aware (mindfulness) and building emotional resources (self-compassion). Positive change occurs as we develop the capacity to be with ourselves in a kinder, more compassionate way. While some difficult emotions may arise when practicing self-compassion, We are trained to provide a safe, supportive environment for participants to explore these practices, and committed to making the journey interesting and enjoyable for everyone.
This course includes 9 total classes made up of 8 weekly sessions of 2 to 2.5 hours each and a silent retreat. Prior to registering, participants should plan to attend every session and practice mindfulness and self-compassion at least 30 minutes per day throughout the program.

-------- What Past Students Say --------
"Learning mindfulness and self-compassion with Becky brought me out of a world of gray into a world of color where I am beginning to hear and understand my inner-voice as a new friend. I feel more alive! I am passing through my life with beautiful memories instead of allowing my life to pass through me."
"I was very skeptical about the whole meditation thing. Now I meditate at least once a day. Sometimes I get in two in one day. I’m a believer!"
