Our Dear friend & colleague Dr. Kristin Neff will be holding a Self-Compassion Workshop Dec. 7-9 at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) Retreat Center in Petaluma, CA. This is a unique opportunity to be with Kristin and learn first-hand, by participating in this experiential weekend workshop, about her research and work in the field of Mindful-Self Compassion.
“This workshop uses exercises taken from the Mindful Self-Compassion program, an empirically supported 8-week training course Neff co-created with colleague Chris Germer. The course is relevant to the general public as well as to practicing mental health professionals, and has the power to radically transform the way you relate to yourself and your life.”
IONS will also be screening The Horse Boy for the larger community on Sat. Dec. 8th from 7:30-9:30 pm. Kristin will be there for Q & A afterward! The Horse Boy is an award-winning documentary her family made about our trip to Mongolia on horseback to find healing for their autistic son.
If the December workshop is not convenient and you would like to train in Mindful-Self Compassion there is an opportunity to participate in our UCSD CFM Professional Training Institute’s 5-Day MSC Professional Training Retreat, being held at Earthrise May 12-17, 2013. Kristin will be joined by her colleague and MSC co-developer Christopher Germer, Ph.D. in leading this training.
