Are you ready?
Recommit to your self-compassion practice.
The CDP is a live, eight-month course for MSC graduates built to support deepening practice within the context of our busy lives
The CDP is a vibrant and enriching MSC Graduates' program offered in conjunction with the Center for Mindful Self-Compassion.
It is intended to support and deepen the personal practice of MSC graduates beyond the initial course itself and will allow them to embody their self-compassion skills over the longer term. Because this is a graduates’ course, the CDP will not explicitly just reteach MSC. Rather, the CDP is a deepening and elaboration of those practices and teachings during which participants re-commit to integrating and embodying self-compassion into daily life through regular, long-term practice. This more slowly paced, spiral learning approach allows participants to consciously embody, expand and deepen their learning.
Re-connect with your self-compassionate voice.
It's not too late to begin again.
Realign with those self-compassion vows you made and enjoy deeper embodiment through dedicated, long-term study and practice with others on the same path.
Revisit MSC concepts and practices, then dive deeper.
Enjoy elaborative guest talks by senior MSC teachers, including Michelle Becker, Christine Braehler, Chris Germer, Beth Mulligan, Steve Hickman, Kristy Arbon, and others.
Journey with others and make new connections along the way
Enjoy 2-hour, teacher-guided weekly meetings with a small group of MSC graduate peers. Connect with each other between live meetings via our private, 24x7, online community.
“Self-compassion takes its own time. It can't be rushed. The CDP program is a unique opportunity to let self-compassion live and breathe in your life until it resonates in every cell of your body.
Aimee, David, and Tina embody the practice themselves and they have a special ability to weave together a supportive community as they attend to each individual's self-compassion journey. I can't recommend the CDP program highly enough.”
— Chris Germer
"The real transformation that is possible with the practice of self-compassion comes as it is woven through our lives in deeper and deeper ways. The Community for Deepening Practice is a perfect vehicle for supporting people in this weaving process through dialogue, continued practice and extended exploration through new exercises designed to extend the learning of MSC. I highly recommend this program for anyone seeking to continue the process that began in MSC."
-Dr. Steve Hickman, Executive Director, CMSC
