In 2014, the flyer I created before teaching my first Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) course was titled “Life is a WILD RIDE.” The working title for my book was Wild Ride, which eventually became Life Falls Apart But You Don’t Have To: mindful methods for staying calm in the midst of chaos.
Now, seven years later, I’m going back to basics, co-teaching the 2021 version of the 8-week MSC course online. This past year has been wilder than ever, as together we navigated a global planetary pandemic. The Center for Mindful Self-Compassion updates the teacher guide yearly, and the 2021 version is fabulous, I’m proud to teach it.
My co-teacher, Natalie Sobel, is clinical social worker, with a decade of experience facilitating mindfulness skills-based groups, and co-teaching MSC for the past 3 years.
We make a great team.

An extra benefit of taking this course is the invitation to a global community where you can continue practicing in daily sessions through the Circles of Practice (which meet all throughout the day in various time zones), the Community for Deepening Practice (an 8-month course for slow, deep engagement with the curriculum and practice — only for MSC grads), and Compassion-Based Residential Retreats.
