Fierce Self-Compassion complements tender self-compassion so that your compassion is balanced and complete.
“Fierce Self-Compassion” allows us to turn to the wide spectrum of possibility in self-compassion practice, a powerful arsenal of resources for protecting, providing and motivating ourselves when things fall apart or during the simple challenges of daily life. This is the beauty of self-compassion, a practice grounded in loving connection and expressed in bold compassionate action.

This program is a pilot program created by Kristin Neff and not an official CMSC program.
Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) is a program developed by Kristin Neff, the pioneering researcher in the field of self-compassion (www.Self-Compassion.org) 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 (www.MindfulSelfCompassion.org) 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.
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 a shift in the direction of your attention—recognizing that as a human being, you, too, are a worthy recipient of compassion.
