About the 8-week Courses
The 8-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an empirically-supported psycho-educational course that teaches a variety of mindfulness practices as health intervention. Research has demonstrated lasting improvements in physical, psychological, and behavioural outcomes. Sleep quality is improved, blood pressure drops, worrying subside, and there is greater ease and peace of mind.
The 8-week Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) course is an empirically-supported course designed to cultivate the skill of self-compassion and teaches core principles and practices that enable participants to respond to difficult moments in their lives with kindness, care and understanding. The three key components of self-compassion are self-kindness, a sense of common humanity, and balanced, mindful awareness. Self-compassion provides emotional strength and resilience, allowing us to admit our shortcomings, motivate ourselves with kindness, forgive ourselves when needed, relate wholeheartedly to others, and be more authentically ourselves

Mindfulness is simply being aware of what is happening right now without wishing it were different;
enjoying the pleasant without holding on when it changes (which it will);
being with the unpleasant without fearing it will always be this way (which it won't).
