Kind Mind Academy Online
Self-Compassion Book Club
Learning to befriend who we already are…
Our first book will investigate “the proven way to accept yourself, build inner strength and thrive”. It is the Mindful Self-Compassion Workbook written by world leading experts of self-compassion Kristin Neff and Christopher Germer.
“The science-based workbook offers a step-by-step approach to breaking free of harsh self-judgements and impossible standards in order to cultivate emotional well-being.”
Kristin Neff & Christopher Germer
This book is based on the authors ground-breaking eight-week mindful self-compassion programme.
The book club is not teaching the programme. Rather it is an opportunity for you to delve into each chapter, uncover your own realisations and discuss your experience.
Through your own learning and evaluation, you can nurture and develop your mindfulness and compassionate awareness. It provides a ‘safe container’ to begin your MSC journey.
This book club
open to ALL
You can be a graduate of the MSC programme or completely new to the material. Either way, we will encourage you to enjoy the material with ‘fresh eyes and a beginners mind!’ No previous experience is required for you to be part of the book club conversation; simply a willingness to assign a little time each week for reading and reflecting.
The Kind Mind Academy book club is guided by two experienced and qualified Mindful Self-Compassion teachers Kathryn Lovewell and Liz Walker, trained by The Centre of Mindful Self-Compassion (CMSC). Both are passionate about MSC and keen to share the life-transforming message with the world. Together they have introduced MSC to teachers, school leaders and support staff; counsellors, directors of nursing, victims of domestic violence, business groups and community leaders. They have been teaching MSC passionately and consistently since 2016.
