Retreat: Compassionate Living

TBA. Weekend Compassionate Living Retreat. TBA. Friday evening and all day Saturday. Fee $50.

Compassion Practices are essential to living a happy and healthy life and complement Mindfulness Practice. When practiced together we nurture both heath and mind resulting in improved health, well-being and enhanced interpersonal communications.

Every human being has a capacity for compassion. It is a universal human quality, inherently present in everyone, but, for many reasons, often not fully cultivated. Fortunately compassion can be developed and deepened through practice, and this is the aim of compassion training.

Workshop learning objectives:

  • Introduce Mindfulness-Based Compassionate Living Principles
  • Understanding emotional regulation systems – drive, threat, calming
  • Learning core practices: Loving Kindness, Self-Compassion and Forgiveness

Registration $50, includes handouts on compassion practices.
