Compassion: A Modern Day Survival Kit


The practice of compassion has for centuries been a guiding principle in the world’s major religious and ethical traditions—but it has never been more urgently needed than it is today.

During this weekend, led by Andrew, we will explore what compassion means to us, learn methods for cultivating our empathy and compassion, and see how these qualities can be integrated and applied in our daily life.

Using the classic text, The Eight Verses for Transforming the Mind, as a basis, we will start to observe how our mind operates, the tricks it can play, and how this influences the way we relate to other people and the world around us. With great clarity, warmth and humour, Andrew skilfully guides us in a process of learning and discovery, through which we can begin to transform ourattitudes and relationships, develop strength and resilience, and bring more wisdom and compassion into every aspect of our lives.
