Six week Mindful Self Compassion

I understand that the teachers are teaching this course as volunteers, and that this course is not

intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease or illness. I understand that there are

times in life when a course like this can be challenging. This includes very early recovery, recent

significant emotional difficulties like a death in the family, unprocessed trauma, unstable

psychiatric disease such as depression, anxiety or psychosis, and uncontrolled pain. If there are

any concerns, I will consult my healthcare provider prior to taking this class. I understand that

this course does not take the place of personal therapy. I understand that the teachers are not

expected nor able to provide medical and/or psychological care, and I have resources available if

I do need such care.

As a participant, I represent and warrant that I have no physical or mental health condition that

would prevent safe participation in the course. I understand that personal safety and emotional

wellbeing are the foundation of this training and that it is my responsibility to decline to

participate in a particular activity that could injure me physically or psychologically. I agree to

assume full responsibility for any risks, injuries or damages, known and unknown, which might

incur as a result of participating in the program. In further consideration of being permitted to

participate in this course, I knowingly, voluntarily, and expressly waive any claim against the

teachers and/or associated institution for injuries or damages that may be sustained as a result

of participating in classes.

I agree to abide by the idea of confidentiality within the group, and I also agree to do my best to

do the home practice suggestions, but I won’t beat myself up if I can’t. I understand that

participation in the class indicates acceptance of this waiver, and I represent that I am of legal

age and I have the legal capacity to accept the terms set forth here.
