Thoughts on Mindful Self-Compassion

Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) is not a therapeutic program, where you come along and then leave all sorted. It is in no means such a quick fix. I would truly be the busiest person in the world if it was.

The wonderful reality is that MSC is a way of being in the world, a way that is kind, mindful and compassionate. I often think of MSC as an ongoing way of creating balance, the balance we are always needing of wisdom (mindfulness) and compassion (loving connected presence).

With all this in mind - it naturally evolved that after the MSC program is finished there needed to be a place for ongoing practice, growth and connection. The practice sessions held regularly at The Heart's Nest at Henley became this place. I will post the discussion notes for each of the sessions up on this page. So we can all stay connected.

In kindness,


Session Details - October the 3rd, 2016 - Discussion around the meaning of the word equanimity. We connected with MSC practices that foster a greater sense of acceptance, calm and balance amongst the ever changing nature of life. 

Session Details - November 7th, 2016 - Starting with a mindfulness practice, taking our compassionate seat and then re-visiting the MSC exercise of transforming anger via 'meeting our unmet needs'. Our discussion was based on Thich Nhat Hanh's book 'Anger'.
