Tuesday, July 10th 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. at Whole Foods/East Cobb: Will Compassion Be Missing from the Story of Your Life?
WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO COMPASSION?
Last year we witnessed,
A young man killing a young woman by using his car to run down a crowd protesting against bigotry and injustice.
A pastor shutting his church doors and turning away people needing shelter after the destruction of Hurricane Harvey.
Do we still believe in compassion, basic goodness, optimism, over all care, health and well-being of our communities? Does this leave you wondering like me, what in the world has happened to compassion?
DO YOU WANT TO CONTINUE DOWN THIS PATH AND GO DOWN LIKE THAT? OR WOULD YOU LIKE TO HELP AND MAKE LASTING CHANGE IN THE STATE OF OUR WORLD?
Compassion training is a skill that needs to be practiced, understood, and applied. It is actually a very complex mental state and our "un-trained" brains can hijack the compassionate process at any moment.
CBCT® Cognitive Behavioral Compassion Training can help us rediscover our purpose in life. Do you want to leave a legacy that never once leaves a doubt about how compassionate you were?
CBCT® will help you do just that. CBCT® is a structured sequence of meditation exercises designed to strengthen mental stability, deepen awareness and understanding of thoughts and emotions, and support the growth of our inherent capacity to care for others. The aim of the practice is to generate and sustain a robust, inclusive, and warm-hearted responsiveness, while protecting ourselves from the side effects of empathic distress, burn-out, fatigue, secondary trauma and shut-down immobility responses. It restores dynamic equilibrium where we can train in relaxed alertness. From this place of stability and a brain that is in-check, we can extend compassion not only to ourselves but to all others, especially those whom we love and care for.
So the question for you is…
WILL COMPASSION BE MISSING FROM THE STORY OF YOUR LIFE?
One of these days you and I will no longer be here. When we are gone people are going to talk about us. What do you want them to be able to say about you?
How will you ensure they will say, amongst other things, that you were compassionate? That you did your complete best and all that you could to love your neighbors, open your heart and be kind.
That is what I will be discussing in this FREE one-hour talk.
Be our hope for humanity.
