The purpose of the 8-week mindfulness based self-compassion course is to increase self-awareness through a heart centered approach. Through the lens of self-compassion, this mindfulness course will promote greater self-acceptance, an increased ability to allow difficult emotions, and provide self-soothing techniques during moments of inner chaos. Through practice, planting the seeds of mindfulness self-compassion can result in the healing of old self-defeating patterns such as self-criticism and blame. Overtime, and with the support of a group, the subtler qualities of self-compassion, wisdom, and inner stability can emerge.
*The group will be open to all UCSF faculty, staff, residents, postdocs, and clinical fellows.
*The free 8-week Mindfulness Based Self-Compassion Program will be held at Mission Bay on Mondays 12-1pm or 1:30-2:30pm
*8-week schedule and location will be announced at info session.
