In this 3-class series, we will learn to cultivate compassion for ourselves and others.

Wednesdays, December 1, 8 & 15 | 6:00–7:15pm ET | $20 per session

We all have the capacity to be in touch with our innate compassion. It is in the nature of being human to respond with care to others’ suffering. However, sometimes life can harden us, which prevents us from experiencing the joys of giving and receiving.

In this three part series, we will learn about mindfulness and meditation, the foundations of cultivating compassion for yourself and others. Explore how YOU can be your best friend, and open up to feeling compassion even in challenging relationships. Unleash a lightness within you, and boundless and sustainable inner strength and joy!

Come be a part of this community as we share discussions, exercises, and group meditations. Open to all levels!

Session 1 (Dec. 1): The Power of Meditation and Mindfulness

  • What is meditation, meditation techniques, and how to develop a practice that works for you.

Session 2 (Dec. 8): The Gift of Self-Love and Self-Compassion

  • Discussion and meditation on self-compassion and loving-kindness.

Session 3 (Dec. 15): The Joy of Experiencing Compassion for Others

  • Discussion on cultivating compassion for others, including challenging people in our lives, and how that can enrich our experience of life.
