Chris Germer joins us for a Mindful Self-Compassion networking event in Brighton. All teachers trained to run the eight-week Mindful Self-Compassion course are invited to attend.

Chris Germer will be with us to support the development of Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) teachers. This is in addition to the compassion and burnout event which takes place the following day (Saturday 21st September 2024) and is open to everyone. This in-person networking event is open to all teachers trained to lead Mindful Self-Compassion courses based in the UK and Europe. The day will explore what teachers need personally and professionally. We will have a chance through practice and inquiry to consider how we might best resource ourselves.

Supported by Chris, this is a great post-pandemic opportunity to see each other again and to replenish our connections and networks. We will take some time to think together about the future of Mindful Self-Compassion in this part of the world, and consider what is needed to support MSC to enable it continue and thrive.
