Join the Faculty & Staff Assistance Program (FSAP) for an eight week mindfulness-based self-compassion course intended to increase self-awareness through a heart-centered approach. Through the lens of self-compassion this mindfulness course will promote greater self-acceptance, increase the ability to endure difficult emotions, and provide self-soothing techniques during moments of inner chaos. Through practice, planting the seeds of mindfulness self-compassion can result in healing 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.

Introduction Session:

  • Monday, February 26, 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. (Parnassus, Moffitt Hospital M-169)

Open to all UCSF faculty, staff, residents, postdocs, and clinical fellows.

Please note: The full free eight week Mindfulness-Based Self-Compassion Program will be held at Parnassus on Mondays from 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. The full schedule will be announced at the introduction session.
