Compassion is needed now more than ever. I think many of us feel this way. We are now aware more than ever of global suffering and that can feel overwhelming. We are more connected than we ever have been, but not in a compassionate way which leaves us feeling socially disconnected with rising rates of loneliness and anxiety. We desperately need the courage and the energy and the hope that compassion can provide. 



For the sake of compassion itself, come see how you can learn to help. Consciously choose compassion and register today for this 2 hour class. Go to:


In this experiential class we will focus on:


* Compassion is always a possibility, but it can also be sometimes really hard to access. What blocks it?

* A neuro-scientific overview of what is happening in our bodies and brains when we train   in compassion

* What gets in the way of compassion and how to dissolve those barriers

* Explore the many dimensions of compassion and how it can directly benefit us and impact our loved ones immediately

* Why compassion is so powerful

* Learn contemplative meditation techniques to allow our body and brain to access compassion more readily
