Financial Support

Our mission is to make all of our programs accessible. Every fee-based offering has a limited number of pay-what-you-can spots available to support self-identified people of color, members of marginalized groups (queer people, transgender people, and  people with disabilities) and those in financial need (those for whom the cost to attend is not financially possible). 

These spots are offered on a first come, first served basis. Please pay at the highest level you can afford. In order for this support to be available, we rely on those who can afford to pay the full price to do so.

Welcome back to Mindful Self-Compassion. Join us as we deepen and enliven our practice amidst the thorny realities of day-to- day life. This class offers an extended opportunity to practice and integrate the self- compassion skills you learned in Mindful Self-Compassion class or the Short Course in Mindful Self-Compassion. Together with a small group of fellow travelers, you can experience losing the path and finding it again and again–as we humans do, with flexibility and kindness.

Together, we will:

  • Start each class with a formal guided meditation
  • Address the topic for the week (i.e., working with shame, forgiveness, learning how to “take in” the good even when contending with difficult emotions)
  • Consider where we most need self-compassion in our everyday lives–at work, with our families, friends, and most of all, with ourselves!

At the end of this course, students will:

  • apply MSC tools while at work
  • identify and understand which negative core beliefs, family history and cultural antecedents may contribute to feelings of shame
  • describe a strategy/exercise using MSC tools for identifying, understanding and meeting unmet emotional needs with self-compassion
  • identify and become familiar with two MSC strategies for “taking in the good” and correcting for the negativity bias
  • discuss and demonstrate how gratitude can generate positive emotions

Schedule:

We will meet for 4 consecutive Thursday evenings at 5pm PT. 

  • September 24th
  • October 1st
  • October 8th
  • October 15th

Prerequisite: completion of a Mindful-Self Compassion course
