Programs & Services —
Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC)

Registration and more info:

Please register for the course by clicking the link below.

You will be asked to complete a short online enrollment form and to pay a $100 deposit, making your payment online (by credit/debit card or PayPal) or by mailing a check.

Your $100 deposit will reserve your place in the Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) course and in one of the available “Orientation” sessions that precede the course.

If you attend the Orientation and then decide that the course is not a good fit for you at this time, your $100 deposit will be refunded. A complete description of our refund policy appears on the registration form.

Please note: If you have previously taken a Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) course with David, then you do not need to attend an Orientation session. You are welcome to do so, but it is optional. To enroll in this upcoming MSC course, you would need to complete the registration form and pay the entire course fee (including any applicable discounts).



About the Orientation sessions

We will offer at least two Orientation sessions, and every participant must attend one of them. You are welcome to choose the one that is most convenient for you.

Dates and times for these Orientation sessions are listed on the registration form.


What is the purpose of the Orientation session?

It is the intention of Valley Mindfulness to provide each person with the opportunity to make the most informed decision possible about enrolling in the Mindful Self-Compassion course.

The Orientation session is not a sales pitch; it is an experiential introduction to the MCS course.

Participants are able to see our classroom space, meet the MSC course teacher, and engage in some activities that are similar to what occurs during the full course.

The Orientation also provides an opportunity for each participant to speak with the teacher privately. During these brief private meetings, participants can discuss any questions they may have regarding the course.  

The Orientation serves as the beginning of the MSC course because it prepares everyone for the first class.


What happens after the Orientation?

At the conclusion of the Orientation session, you can decide if the MSC course is truly a good fit for you at this time in your life.

As the Orientation session ends, you may decide:

    • To commit to the full MSC course by paying the balance of the course fee.
    • That the MSC course is not a good match for your needs, in which case you will receive a full refund of your $100 deposit.


What if I cannot attend one of the scheduled Orientation sessions?

Please contact us if you are strongly interested in the MSC program but find that attending an Orientation session is not possible for you. In some cases, we might be able to work out alternative arrangements. However, our ability to make exceptions is likely to be very limited.
