LOMSC with Christine Grace McMulkin

Saturdays, March 23 - May 25, 2024

This course meets every Saturday from 8:00 - 10:00 am PT (with a 3-hour online retreat from 8:00 - 11:00 am PT on May 4).

Try as we might, we each make mistakes from time to time. We may snap at family members, make errors at work, or forget to pay a parking ticket. During these moments, when we’re faced with our perceived failures or shortcomings, many of us may beat ourselves up, believing that we don’t deserve kindness, or that somehow punishment may make us “be better” or “good enough.”

But over the past decade of researching self-compassion, we’ve learned that we can’t berate ourselves into optimal health, happy relationships, or career success. In fact, research shows that self-compassion — responding kindly to ourselves in the face of struggle, just as we would a dear friend — is much more likely to lead to long-term wellbeing than harsh self-criticism.

This is required even as we are a registered non-profit. What does this mean for you?

  • What would be grounds for participant removal?

It is not a substitute for mental health care, personal therapy or medical treatment. Personal safety and emotional wellbeing are the foundation of self-compassion training and you are primarily responsible for your own safety. Teachers and facilitators are not expected or able to provide medical and/or psychological care. Course experiences may bring up challenging memories or feelings. If you have a history with a serious mental health condition or other concerns you think may impact your ability to take this course, please contact CMSC or your healthcare professional to determine if this course is right for you. Your personal contact information may be used in the event the teacher or facilitator reasonably determines a need to call emergency services on your behalf.
