About the Event

 

A Day of Compassion Cultivation Practice (1-day workshop)

  

Facilitated by Diane Hetrick & Magdalena Szpala

March 28, 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM

 About this workshop 

This workshop will offer simple yet powerful compassion practices and exercises that you can weave into your day. We will introduce the exercises through short discussions, spend time experiencing a variety of practices, and reflect through interactive discussions.

Cultivating compassion can be challenging at times. Practicing in a spacious and supportive environment, with others, can be particularly helpful. This Day of Compassion Cultivation will include didactic information, guided 20-30 minute meditations, time for written reflection, partner exercises and sharing, along with group discussion and embodied movement practices. 

 

Key topics covered include information and meditations focusing on the three flows of Compassion:

  1. Compassion for Oneself
  2. Compassion for Others
  3. Receiving Compassion from Others. 

We will be offering some of the latest brain science on working with our autonomic nervous system to stay present and open, rather than overwhelmed or shut down, as we engage in these practices, so they are more readily accessible in our lives.
