Mindful Self Compassion 8 week course


Mindful Self Compassion, (MSC) is an 8 week training program designed to cultivate the skill of self-compassion – the warm hearted, connected presence we need during times of difficulty. It is based on the ground breaking research of Kristin Neff and Christopher Germer.

Full description of MSC here


No previous experience with mindfulness or meditation is required to attend MSC. However, such experience is very beneficial, if available, particularly as it provides a familiar foundation for the meditation practice.

To ensure safety, participants are asked to provide background information when they register for the programme.


The course is taught by MSC Trained Teacher Mariana Straton
