Cultivating Compassion for Life
One day workshop

In order to successfully navigate all the stresses and challenges of our lives, we need resilience. Resilience helps us bounce back from difficult situations and even grow stronger and wiser as a result. When combined with the qualities of mindfulness and compassion, you can experience a greater sense of stability and flexibility to live a life with more presence and fulfillment. These are all skills that can be learned and cultivated.
The session will draw on the curriculum of the 8-week program called Compassion Cultivation Training developed at the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education at Stanford University. It is taught by two certified CCT teachers, Diane Hetrick and Magdalena Szpala.

Cultivating compassion goes beyond feeling more empathy and concern for others.
It develops the strength to be with suffering, the courage to take compassionate action in a hurting world, and the resilience to prevent compassion fatigue. These qualities support a wide range of goals, from making a positive social change to improving personal relationships.
