Community for Deepening Practice, Cohort 25

August 14, 2023 - April 1, 2024

▣ About the course:

◑ Apply

This 8-month course provides opportunities to deepen your self-compassion practice in a live, committed, global, online community. The CDP is a deepening and elaboration of MSC. Participants re-commit to integrating and embodying self-compassion in daily life through regular, long-term practice in community with others. Our class sizes are intentionally kept small, and the more slowly paced, spiral learning approach allows participants to savor the practices anew as a way to consciously embody, expand, and deepen their learning. This is also a good opportunity for emerging MSC teachers who wish to deepen their own practice in support of their future teaching endeavors. While the CDP invites rigorous self-contemplation, it is also designed to fit into your busy daily life. Please note: this is not a drop-in course.

Partial proceeds from this course go to support the good work of the CMSC’s Graduates Circles of Practice.
