MSC is a mindfulness-based training programme in compassion.
MSC consists of 8 sessions lasting approximately 3 hours each, taking place at weekly intervals, as well as a single 4-hour retreat. Before signing up for the course, participants should intend to attend every session and to practise at least 30 minutes each day for the duration of the course.
Groups usually consist of 8 to 25 participants led by one or two trained or certified MSC teachers. Please consult our international teacher directory to find an fully qualified MSC teacher in your area .
Only certified MSC teachers may also offer the training in a 5-day intensive format. The groups at 5-day intensive programmes may be larger.
During the course participants are invited to try out various formal and informal practices which aim to facilitate a direct experience of self-compassion and which can be easily integrated into daily life. The course will consist of short teachings, guided meditations, reflection exercises, small and large group sharing and suggestions for home practice.
