Mindful Self Compassion (MSC)

Our culture propagates the fantasy that we can avoid pain and that happiness is dependant upon the circumstances of our life. There is no way of avoiding the pain of life's struggles. What we need is wisdom in the ways we navigate the bittersweet symphony of life.

Mindful Self-Compassion

It takes courage to stand up to harm, including that we unwittingly inflict on ourselves through self-criticism, self-isolation, self-rumination or the projection of our pain onto others, when things go wrong.

Many of us have not a model of how to respond to life’s difficult moments with kindness, care or understanding. Our efforts to suppress pain only amplifies the distress and disconnection we feel from ourselves and others. Self-compassion is a skill that can be learned by anyone, even those who feel uncomfortable when they are good to themselves.
