Essential Resilience: Mindfulness and Self-Compassion


Self-compassion is essential to living our lives with courage and authenticity. Greeting difficult emotions with kindness creates resiliency in our lives and genuine compassion for others.

Mindfulness and Self-Compassion (MSC) is an 8 week series of 2.5hr classes, as well as a half-day retreat. MSC guides participants into a deeper understanding of self-compassion through talks, class exercises, meditation, poetry, movement and group discussion.

MSC is an experiential workshop with its emphasis on the practice of self-compassion, rather than mindfulness. And while MSC is therapeutic, it is not group therapy. MSC is a structured program designed to cultivate the resources of mindfulness and self compassion, not to heal old wounds.

MSC works best with a full commitment to the 8 sessions, including the half-day retreat. It also benefits from a commitment to a daily practice of 30m of mindfulness and self-compassion (both formal and informal combined).

Join me at the Haven—Bend’s newest co-working space, beginning Thursday, October 03 and continuing every Thursday until November 21, 2019. Costs are $125 for Haven members/ $140 for non-members and includes a half-day retreat on Saturday, November 09.

For more information, give me a shout.
