  • “A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” ~ Albert Einstein 

    Compassion is described as the desire to relieve suffering or affliction. Grounded in connection and kindness, compassion also involves courageous action for positive change. In this eight week course, we'll explore what compassion really is, how it affects our well-being, and barriers to compassion. Combining the latest in scientific research, we'll learn how to cultivate a compassionate mind and embody this attitude in our lives through practical exercises and guided practices.

    When: January 9 - March 6 (Mondays) from 7:00-8:30pm. No class on January 16.
    Where: Skill for Mind, 2702 N. Proctor Street, Tacoma 98407
