UCSF Faculty & Staff Assistance Program Presents: Mindfulness-Based Self-Compassion Program

The purpose of the 8-week mindfulness-based self-compassion course is to increase self-awareness through a heart-centered approach. Through the lens of self-compassion, this mindfulness course will promote greater self-acceptance, an increased ability to allow difficult emotions, and provide self-soothing techniques during moments of inner chaos. Through practice, planting the seeds of mindfulness self-compassion can result in the healing of old self-defeating patterns such as self-criticism and blame. Over time, and with the support of a group, the subtler qualities of self-compassion, wisdom, and inner stability can emerge.
