Changes to MSC Community Drop-In Wednesday March 25th


‘We live in a time when science is validating what humans have known throughout the ages: that compassion is not a luxury; it is a necessity for our well-being, resilience, and survivial’

Hello Dear All

We hope you are taking kind and compassionate care of yourself and loved ones in these challenging times. A gentle reminder that it is actually in times of struggle and suffering that mindful self-compassion truly shines.

Our first two meetings were amazing gatherings of warm-hearted folks seeking community and a place to share, meditate, practice mindfulness and self-compassion.  So, it is with some sadness that we postpone meeting face to face on the last Wednesday as planned. Based on health ministry guidelines regarding the spread of Covid19, CC and I have decided to cancel this month’s Community Self-Compassion Drop-In (scheduled for the evening of March 25th).

Now for the silver lining!  We are considering offering a virtual community drop-in using Zoom on Wednesday March 25th from 7 – 8:30 pm.  Basically you tell us you are interested, you download Zoom (it’s free), and then we send you a link to join in the virtual meeting.  Your screen opens up and you see everyone who has joined the meeting – it is kind of like a photo album come to life!

Please let me know if you would like an invitation to attend the first ever community Self-Compassion Drop-In next Wednesday evening.  No experience with meditation or mindful self-self-compassion is needed.

As for future community drop-ins, we will make our decision based on health guidelines regarding public gatherings closer to the date.

P.S.  We are also offering our first ever online version of the 8-Week Mindful Self-Compassion program starting the end of May.  We will use the Zoom platform for that as well.  Please let us know via email if you are interested.  This special opportunity has been granted to us by the Center for Mindful Self-Compassion in light of Covid19.

With Love,
