A Short Course in Mindful Self-Compassion Group (6-week)

$225.00

** Open to residents of Ontario only **

This 6-week group provides you with exposure to mindfulness and self-compassion knowledge, skills, and practices in a briefer form. It is based on the full 8-week Mindful Self-Compassion group, with more of an emphasis on practical teachings and tools to manage daily stressors.

This group consists of six weekly, 1.5-hour sessions over Zoom, beginning on Thursday October 1st and ending on Thursday November 5th, 2020 from 6-730pm. Program activities include short talks, experiential exercises, large and small group discussion, and home practices.

This group will help you to be able to:
•. Practice self-compassion in daily life
•. Understand the empirically-supported benefits of self-compassion
• Use mindfulness and self-compassion practices for grounding and to manage overwhelm/stress
•. Motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticism
• Handle difficult emotions with greater ease
• Manage caregiver fatigue and burnout

Funding support:
• A certain allotment of pro-bono and sliding scale spaces are available based on financial need.
• Some extended health benefits providers offer partial or complete reimbursement (under ‘psychological services’)
• Individuals with Indigenous status are eligible for funding through the NIHB and IRS programs.
