Event Description

MSC Teacher Training is an intensive, 6-day, residential program facilitated by a team of senior MSC teachers. 

The training is built around the eight weekly sessions of MSC with each half day dedicated to a condensed, experiential review of one of the sessions, followed by small group activities designed to give attendees opportunities to practice teaching, guiding and facilitating discussion in that session with the close consultation of one of the Teacher Trainers. In addition, the training includes short talks, group exercises, discussion, and periods of silence. Participants will be provided with the essential materials to teach MSC programs.

Participants Will Learn To:

Deepen their personal practice of responding to difficult emotions with mindfulness and compassion Summarize current basic theory and research on self-compassion Identify the core themes and be able to implement practices presented in each of the eight group sessions of MSC, plus the retreat day Develop the skills necessary to facilitate MSC groups, including how to guide meditation, teach from each participant’s direct experience, and facilitate group cohesion Apply advanced mindful self-compassion principles and practices in teaching patients, students, or clients Engage in real-time interactive sessions to demonstrate teaching skills and receive feedback and assessment from instructors Identify obstacles to mindful self-compassion practice and strategies for overcoming them Embody a mindful and compassionate stance toward students of the MSC program as they confront challenges to their practice Who Should Attend This 6-day intensive is intended for those who wish to teach the MSC program, those who would like to integrate mindfulness and self-compassion in their ongoing professional activities (i.e., psychotherapy, coaching, nursing, teaching, etc.), and individuals who have a professional interest in the field (i.e., researchers, administrators, etc.).

What To Expect:

Our ability to teach others depends largely on discovering the power of self-compassion in our own lives and embodying the practice. Since the core principles and practices of the MSC program are taught through experiential learning, participants are encouraged to focus on their felt experience during teacher training. Ample time will also be allocated for professional dialogue and the nuts and bolts of teaching.
