**This is a zoom class**
A previous MSC class is a prerequisite for this class.
We are so excited to announce this long-requested series! In this class, students already familiar with Mindful Self Compassion will have the opportunity to re-connect with, re-fresh, and re-vitalize their self-compassion practice. We will revisit the fundamentals of self-compassion, have some more expansive time to spend in both meditation and discussion groups, and learn and practice more deeply with some additional facets of self-compassion like fierce self-compassion, forgiveness, and working with shame. Additionally, students are encouraged to bring other topics of interest to the attention of the teachers. Hope to see you there!
