Self Compassion: The Jewel at the Heart of Being

This one-day workshop focuses specifically on practices that enhance our capacity for self-compassion and self care – which is foundational to our ability to be of true service in the world.

We all know that at the core of our ability to bring compassion to others, those closest to us as well as those suffering around the globe, we must embrace our ability to be compassionate with ourselves. And yet that seems to be one thing so many of us have the greatest difficulty with.

Join us for a session focused on honing the jewel that exists at the heart of our being.

(Our 2-day basic Compassionate Listening Workshop, Healing the World from the Inside Out, is not a pre-requisite for this workshop.)

  • Cultivating Compassion
  • Developing the Fair Witness

Compassionate Listening practices reach deep into the heart of discord or disconnection, teaching people to listen with a different “ear” to those around them. Its powerful tools help transform the energy of conflict into opportunities for understanding, intimacy at home, healthy relationships, productive teamwork, and positive action. Our practices provide a roadmap to what sages from all ages and cultures have taught: cultivating the wisdom of the heart is the key to real peace “from the inside out.”

This is the Basic Intensive workshop that has been taught throughout the United States and on other continents for many years. It serves as a great introduction or a perennial refresher for those who have studied before.

How can we work more deeply from a compassionate heart in our endeavors to transform our world? Come to this 2-day session to develop your skills in the realm of work and community development, being an ally, large group interaction, and leadership. We’ll focus on issues of rank, privilege, internalized and systemic oppression, grief, and forgiveness – and practice ‘sitting in the fire’ with those with whom we disagree. Through a combination of practices, we’ll work to strengthen our ability to be a positive force in the world – with the courage, knowledge and humility needed to “take a stand.”

On each step of the journey, you’ll integrate more deeply the wisdom of mind, body and spirit in service of creating the world we long for. Explore with us in this laboratory for growth and connection.
