Compassion-that is all!


To be a student of compassion, does not necessarily increase compassionate behaviour.

There is an arc or continuum that starts with empathizing with someone suffering to actually helping them out.

Loving-kindness mindfulness is being mindful of oneself and reaches into the people throughout the world.

There are three forms of compassion which span the intellectual, emotional and our concern for others.

So why help ourselves help others?

The “Altered Traits” by Daniel Goleman & Richard J. Davidson revels why and how in their ground breaking book and research.

It says mindfulness will enhance empathic concern, activate good feelings and love, and activate brain circuitry to register the suffering of others.

It proves that in 16 hours of mindful loving kindness meditation, that we can reduce intractable unconscious bias towards other people.

Who wouldn’t want to be more compassionate?

Imagine what a lifetime commitment can do.
