The impact of compassion-based contemplative practices is enjoying a surge in the current mainstream and scientific literature. Yet, it remains unclear how to practice compassion towards oneself, family and strangers. How does compassion practice impact our health and underlying physiology? The purpose of this integrative workshop is to describe the latest scientific findings describing how compassion training improves well-being and health.
This workshop is ideal for those in the health and mental health fields who want to learn more about this powerful practice, experience it for themselves, and who want to share it with others in their work and lives. It is also an immersive experience for those who are just curious about the practice and want to learn more about the science and the benefits.
