Compassion is an innate human quality exemplified by our instinct to care for vulnerable humans
and animals. Compassion also involves recognizing our own suffering and that of others, emotionally sharing it, and developing the desire to alleviate suffering.  Research shows that compassion makes us happier, strengthens our connections with others, improves mental and physical health, and increases resilience. But in our fast-paced, stressful modern life, the heart and mind are often neglected. To help us face life’s challenges, compassion must be re-cultivated.  In this 8 week program learn how to settle the mind through meditation/mindfulness, cultivate compassion and kindness towards loved ones and oneself, realize common humanity by cultivating compassion
towards others.
Instructors: Irakli Soulakvelidze and Katy Dalakishvili
