Would you like to reduce your anger or fear and be more emotionally regulated?

Compassion can open our hearts and transform our critical mind to a more appreciative and forgiving mind.

Compassion can help to heal the pain from past unpleasant experiences and build our mental resilience to face the future with more equanimity and optimism. This reduces anxiety, panic attacks, insomnia and other depressive symptoms.

Outcomes

  • Less anger and resentment
  • More forgiving, less critical and blaming towards oneself and others
