The Art of Compassionate Living

Learning to cultivate our natural capacity for love and compassion

Although kindness and compassion are basic human qualities, it is not always easy to embody them in our lives, especially in today’s hectic, fast-paced world. The good news is that we can cultivate compassion, bringing major benefits for our health and well-being, and our relationships with family, friends and colleagues.

Andrew Warr will present simple ways to develop our empathy and compassion for ourselves and those around us—at home, at work and in every aspect of our lives. Through these methods, we can discover the strength and resilience to meet challenges head-on and to lead more meaningful and fulfilling lives.

This exploration of empathy and compassion will include instruction in meditation and compassion practices from the Buddhist tradition but will be conducted in a spirit of open enquiry and so will be relevant for those of any spiritual tradition or none.
