5 Day



Mindful Self-Compassion 5-day intensives

MSC can be experienced in an intensive format, with the 8 sessions occuring over consecutive days including the extra retreat session.
The MSC intensive follows the same format and content as the 8-week program.


Why choose an Intensive?

Due to work or family commitments the intensive training may work better for some, it allows participants to fully immerse themselves in MSC. There are options of retreat style residential MSC intensives or non-residential. Please scroll down to see options of intensives with Tina Gibson in 2019.

A 5-day intensive program for your organisation or group:
Tina is available to facilitate the MSC intensive training within your organisation or community group. With the assistance of another trained MSC teacher Tina can travel interstate, and to the best of her abilities meet your training schedules.

The 5-Day MSC Intensive:

"This program did meet my needs - I have left with a greater understanding of MSC and myself, I am more kind and gentle to myself, and feel more emotionally resilient. I feel motivated to continue the practices."

"I was touched by the ease to be with others, the common humanity - and with this ease came acceptance and a longing to be kinder to myself."

"This has been a life changing course for me. I finally have a solid way to respond to my empathic resonance and intense emotions. And turning the loving kindness towards my wandering mind and critic was revolutionary. There was something bigger as well that I can’t quite put my finger on, but this approach to suffering in myself and others just feels right." - past participant

"The intensive MSC course was an extremely valuable way to spend 4-days. The teachers provided a safe environment for exploring and sharing a range of life's difficult issues. The exercises, meditations and discussions were practical and useful but most importantly I have been able to apply them in my everyday life. It was a well-constructed course that allowed each individual to participate as much as they felt comfortable and to take from it what they needed for their own personal circumstances. The teachers were compassionate, kind and wise and helped me to challenge myself which is exactly what I needed." - Kerry
