“We are called to slow down and see the world more deeply, to plunge ourselves fully into its heart, and to reveal what we discover.”
—Christine Valters Paintner
During the foundational Mindful Self-Compassion training, many participants experience the extraordinary nourishing and healing quality of self-compassion for the first time. With sustained commitment, practice, and dedication, a deep level of embodiment and integration can begin to take root in the practitioner’s daily life.
For this reason, we created the Community for Deepening Practice (CDP).
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.
The CDP meets online weekly for 8 months (with holiday breaks).
Next course runs Wednesdays, January 18, 2017 - September 2017. (Please note this is a revised start date.)
