Select the Training – Mindful Self-Compassion Teacher Training Intensive

For someone to develop genuine compassion towards others, first he or she must have a basis upon which to cultivate compassion, and that basis is the ability to connect to one’s own feelings and to care for one’s own welfare... Caring for others requires caring for oneself

- Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama

What to Expect


MSC Teacher Training is an intensive, 6-day, residential program facilitated by a team of senior MSC teachers.

The Delivery of MSC


The delivery of MSC requires the teacher to teach from a personal integration of what it means to embody a non-judgmental present moment focus with an understanding of how this supports and strengthens such mind states as kindness, compassion and equanimity. This training will provide the opportunity to strengthen these teacher competences.

Objectives






Participant Guidelines and Pre-requisites

It is our experience that successful delivery of MSC requires facilitators to have a commitment to an ongoing, daily mindfulness meditation practice. To this end we have created recommendations for acceptance to this MSC training.



PERSONAL SKILLS


Established daily mindfulness practice of at least two years.
Ongoing, daily, sitting meditation practice.
Ongoing practice of loving-kindness and self-compassion in daily life.
Have attended at least a teacher-led silent mindfulness meditation retreat of 5 days


PROFESSIONAL SKILLS

Previous participation in a five-day or eight-week Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) Training.
Experience teaching meditation in groups, such as Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, or in clinical settings.
You do not have to be a clinician to take the MSC Teacher Training.


Will I be qualified to teach MSC after taking this training?

Feeling ready to teach MSC raises a number of important questions.



The purpose of the 6-day Teacher Training is to establish a basic level of training and proficiency sufficient to begin offering the program to the general public.
As a result of participating in this training you will leave with basic MSC teaching skills. However, this retreat training is not an endorsement for teaching the MSC program. Rather, we believe that preparing to become an MSC teacher requires additional training elements in order to develop competency and best practices skills.
To receive MSC Trained Teacher status, graduates of the Teacher Training are also expected to receive consultation while teaching at least one 8-week MSC program,
either by co-facilitating with a certified MSC teacher or through online group consultation offered through the Center for MSC.
All Trained Teachers are eligible to be listed on the Center for MSC website in a Directory of Trained Teachers.

What can I say when I have attended this training?


After attending the training, you may state: “_____ (your name) has attended and completed the 6-Day MSC Teacher Training through the Center for Mindful Self-Compassion.”









What can I do when I have completed this training?


Trained Teacher status is a key step toward Certification. Certification is a process of ensuring that an individual has achieved full competency through experience, training and supervision over a period of time and practice. The UC San Diego Center for Mindfulness offers certification in conjunction with the Center for Mindful Self-Compassion. Please see our MSC Certification Pathway if you have further questions about Certification.



Teacher Training

The MSC program has been in development since 2009, and a MSC training manual is scheduled for publication in 2018 (Guilford Press).
