8-Session MSC  Programme

(24 Hours)

“Self-compassion is simply giving the same kindness to ourselves that we would give to others.”   
~ Christopher Germer

An 8-Session Mindful Self-Compassion Programme is a 24-hour deep-dive training for the development and practice of self-compassion.

Research by Dr. Kristin Neff demonstrates the proven benefits of Mindful Self-Compassion safely and effectively improves health by:
• enhancing emotional well-being
• building resilience
• boosting happiness
• reducing anxiety
• reducing depression

This training is delivered in a weekly or intensive format.

The weekly format allows time for integration between each session. This supports you to practice and reflect, embody the tools and skills in the spaces between the teaching sessions. While it can be emotionally challenging, it generates an opportunity to practise MSC skills in everyday life.

The intensive format allows you to immerse yourself deeply in MSC and experience its transformative influence without the distractions of everyday life.  While it can be emotionally challenging, it enables you to give yourself unadulterated focus on yourself and your practice.

There are no pre-requisites or prior experience required for this programme.

Both beginners and those with significant mindfulness experience find this training deeply impactful.

This programme officially qualifies as one of the pre-requisites for those wishing to take the MSC Teacher Training.

I am so grateful for the positive impact this course has had on my life. Kathryn and Liz are a dream team. Their care and kindness for every single member of the class created a wonderful sense of safety that allowed me to learn life-changing practices in a super accessible, fun way. I’ve so appreciated their wisdom, encouragement, and the immense sense of hope I have gained from their skillful teaching and guidance.”

“I completed the Kind Mind MSC 8 week course this winter. Kathryn and Liz brought the work to life. Every week we received new lessons and well written emails for follow up. Kind Mind Academy graduates leave as more compassionate and loving people. I think that's what the world needs more of!”

“I did the MSC 8-week course with Kind Mind Academy starting in October 2020 and the love, kindness, and self-compassion learning I received changed my life. Kathryn and Liz facilitated and led us so gently and lovingly with vulnerability and authenticity to a safe place of powerful revelation. I had been waiting all my life for someone else to give me the unconditional love, honour, care and kindness that only I could give myself. Self-compassion was a missing large piece of the jigsaw of my life that has been put in place so I feel more complete and can see more of the picture of who I am. As I practice mindful self-compassion I become more compassionate with others and the more I give away the more it grows. I have a well-worn path into the pit of shame and mindful self-compassion is the firm and accessible ladder to climb out of it. The course has inspired me in many ways, one of which is to re-ignite my creativity and I've begun to write poetry as I loved the poetry shared in the course. I loved my Journey with KMA so much I am on 2 of their graduate programmes and love to learn and grow with the beautiful inspiring community that KMA is.
Thank you so much.”

“Kathryn Lovewell & Liz Walker are excellent facilitators and practitioners of the MSC programme. All their programmes I’ve attended are infused with a luminous hope, compassion and beautiful encouragement without going anywhere near the dreaded ‘fixing’. They help one celebrate and honour who we are in all our moments, no denial, just pure compassion. It’s an honour to be with them and the community they have both created is like a warm sunshine that never descends. And their teaching of all MSC practices is clear, practical and great fun without any sense of preciousness. I cannot recommend them highly enough, you will be embraced in a luminous compassion! Thank you special K and luminous Liz!”

“I have recently completed the 8-week MSC course led by Kathryn and Liz. I was diagnosed with burnout, stress, and exhaustion during Covid year. I somehow knew I had to start approaching my life differently. I am more grateful than I can put into words for the learning to relate to myself with self-compassion rather than seeing myself as a problem to be fixed. The course is life-changing and I love that the learning and connections continue through the community of loving, compassionate, supportive Kind Minders.”

“I was extremely impressed with the design and delivery of the online 8-week course during lockdown (2021). Kathryn and Liz did a fantastic job of making us all feel open to share and receive valuable content and experiences from them and from each other. The course is practical, evidence-based, deep, light-hearted, fun, creative and builds a strong sense of community. The skills I have learnt are invaluable to me and my work.”

“I’ve done all the types of MSC courses that Kathryn and Liz have offered and each one has met a particular need at that time. I never realised I had needs before! The 8 week and 5 day intensive were deep dives into recognising the gulf between my treatment of others and myself. I could be kind to myself! Revelation! I learnt to become aware of my unconscious thoughts and patterns. With each course I uncovered a little more as I explored my unmet needs and gently I am steering the kindness ship towards myself.”

The 8 week MSC course enabled me to stop striving and start being - letting go and feeling free.”
