Compassion-oriented events

These events support the development of people interested in compassion-oriented approaches, such as Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) and Mindfulness-based Compassionate Living (MBCL). These include events lasting from one day up to a week and are typically led by nationally and internationally renowned speakers, as well as by local teachers with experience and training in this area.

  • 2-day Core Skills Workshop in Mindful Self-Compassion

    with Dr Kristin Neff and Dr Chris Germer

    Sussex Mindfulness Centre is delighted to host the only UK MSC workshop in 2020 from Kristin Neff and Chris Germer

    Sat & Sun 18-19 July 2020

    9.00am-5.00pm

    Paganini Ballroom, Old Ship Hotel, 31-38 Kings Road, Brighton BN1 1NR

    The MSC Core Skills program is a workshop and not a retreat.  Program activities include talks, meditation, experiential exercises, and group discussion. Participants will directly experience self-compassion and learn practices that evoke self-compassion in daily life (and the rationale behind them).

    **This Core Skills Workshop allows an opportunity for people to immerse themselves in some of the key practices and exercises of the full 8-week program in an intensive 2-day format. **

    After participating in this workshop, you will be able to:

    1. Understand the science of self-compassion    
    2. Handle difficult emotions with greater ease
    3. Motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticism  
    4. Manage caregiver fatigue           
    5. Practice the art of savouring and self-appreciation
    6. Teach simple self-compassion exercises to clients
    7. Take the first step towards training as an MSC teacher

    This workshop is an introduction to MSC and is not a qualification to teach the 8-week MSC Course which requires further training. No previous experience with mindfulness or meditation is required to attend the program.

     £240 early bird. £290 from 16 December 2019
