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 - June, 2018. Our discussion explored the traditional heart practice of loving-kindness meditation. We shared amongst us the different ways we all practice it, what we find it most helpful to refer to our practice as and how we find our own language of love that truly brings a sense of acceptance and connection.

Session Details - May, 2018 - An exploration in how mindfulness and self-compassion can assist us to find calm in the storm, a kind of emotional resilience.

Resistance: how it can make life harder and the role Mindfulness and Self-Compassion can play in resisting a little less.

Session Details - December, 2017. We started with a mindfulness practice followed by the heart practice of the giving and receiving of compassion for self and others. Our discussion explored the topic of anger, how our MSC practice can give us the resources to look into our anger to perhaps allow it to lead us to wise compassionate responses.
