MINDFUL SELF-COMPASSION 5-DAY INTENSIVE
Christopher Germer & Lynette Monteiro
Toronto ON Canada
MAY 30 – JUNE 3, 2016
Join us in the exciting city of Toronto for a week of practice in Mindful Self-Compassion.
The Mindful Self-Compassion Intensive is offered as a five-day program and qualifies as the prerequisite for training as a Mindful Self-Compassion teacher. Please see the Center For Mindful Self-Compassion for more details on teacher training.
Mindful Self-Compassion is a research-supported program developed by Dr. Christopher Germer and Dr. Kristin Neff. Research studies on self-compassion show that it can lower anxiety and depression, and improve our relationships with others.
The intensive will introduce participants to the three components of self-compassion: mindfulness, common humanity, and self-kindness. Participants will learn how to bring this directly into their lives through experiential exercises, meditations, movement practices, and small and large group work. Meditations will cultivate the practice of loving kindness, compassion and equanimity. Sessions will include both didactic and experiential components.
We are pleased to offered this as part of the Certificate Program in Applied Mindfulness Meditation at the University of Toronto Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work Continuing Education.
