About this event

WHAT?

Why Compassion?

When we lack compassion for oneself or others, we can be easily provoked, experience feelings of anger, anxiety and resentment.

Applying compassion opens our heart and mind to see the world with gratitude, abundance and joyfulness. We can transform our blaming and critical mind to an appreciative and forgiving mind.

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

Applying compassion not just to oneself but others as well (holistic compassion) will enable us to be more equanimous and effective in forming and maintaining good relationships with ourself and others.
