"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 and David 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 and personally look forward to seeing you there."

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 next CDP begins January 16, 2019 and runs Wednesdays for 8 months.
