Workshop Series: Introduction to Compassionate living

From the Charter for Compassion:

“Be kind and you will be well. It has been the cornerstone of Eastern philosophy for centuries. But what if recognizing our shared humanity was more than just a sentimental ideal? What if consciously practicing kindness could change the wiring of your brain and make you live longer? Practicing compassion with intention has a positive physiological effect on the body.” And, there is a growing body of research that shows “compassion could be the key to improved health, happiness and longevity.”

The purpose of this workshop is to introduce participants to the concept and practice of compassionate living.

Participants will:

  • explore emerging understandings about the science and benefits of compassion
  • learn about self-compassion and the practice of loving-kindness
  • examine emerging research on "fierce self-compassion"
  • understand how mindfulness, self-acceptance, and self-forgiveness are central to compassion
  • learn about the protective nature of compassion, especially when caring for others
  • engage in experiential practices designed to help cultivate a compassionate life
