Course Content

Compassion involves risking being in relationship with someone else. The essence of compassion is being open to a connection between the deepest part of
ourselves and the deepest and most vulnerable part of another human being. That connection is one that can be nourishing for both parties. Yet at times we can
feel very disconnected from our compassionate self and really struggle to feel compassion toward others. When we are unable to forgive we can remain trapped in our anger and unable to engage fully with our lives.
