Our Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction course is based on the teachings of Jon Kabat-Zinn (author of Full Catastrophe Living) at the University of Massachusetts Medical Centre and the Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy courses developed by Segal, Williams and Teasdale at the University of Bangor where Jean, the course facilitator has completed her studies.
The Mindful Self Compassion course is based on the work created by Kristin Neff and Christopher Germer. MSC is the foundation of emotional healing — being aware in the present moment when we're struggling with feelings of inadequacy, despair, confusion, and other forms of stress (mindfulness) and responding with kindness and understanding (self-compassion). Mindful self-compassion also means holding difficult emotions—fear, anger, sadness, shame and self-doubt—and ourselves, in loving awareness, leading to greater ease and well-being in our daily lives.
