Online Compassion Cultivation Training, Fall 2021
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 empathy fatigue. These qualities support a wide range of goals, from making a positive social change to improving personal relationships.
Due to COVID-19, to minimize risks to ourselves and others, we are offering our training online.
September 23 – November 11, 2021, Thursdays,
6:30 pm – 8:30 pm (Pacific Time)
Why Compassion Cultivation?
We all face difficult situations, challenging relationships, and internal thoughts and beliefs that prevent us from experiencing the best life has to offer. When we become more aware, open, and curious about the world and people around us, we learn to use our natural compassion in practical ways to navigate life’s toughest personal challenges and begin to move through life’s ups and downs with greater confidence and ease. It is a foundation for making the world a better place.
Compassion can be cultivated. Learning to practice compassion can alleviate our worries and fears so we can become powerful forces for good — in our relationships, families, workplaces, and communities.
