Background of Mindful Self-Compassion

Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) is a program developed by Kristin Neff, the pioneering researcher in the field of self-compassion ( and the author of Self-Compassion: Stop Beating Yourself Up and Leave Insecurity Behind; and Christopher Germer, a clinical psychologist who specializes in mindfulness and compassion-based psychotherapy ( and the author of many books including A Mindful Path to Self-Compassion.  Fierce Self Compassion is adapted from both MSC and the new work of Kristin Neff on Fierce Self-Compassion.

In this program, you will learn:

  • Self compassion as a skill that can help you to meet life's difficulties with more wisdom, strength and kindness.
  • How to offer yourself the compassion and encouragement you would naturally extend to a dear friend or stranger.
  • A courageous attitude of mind that will give you emotional stability and resilience to be more fully present with uncertainty so that you can recover from life's difficulties and move on with more ease and confidence.


Research has shown that self-compassion greatly enhances emotional well-being. It boosts happiness, reduces anxiety and depression, burnout, and can even help you stick to your diet and exercise routine. All that’s required is shift in the direction of your attention—recognizing that as a human being, you, too, are a worthy recipient of compassion.
