Being compassionate is a quality that can be learnt. Kindness behaviour is a training. Learning how to be kind supports our physical and mental wellbeing. Being kind is not about being nice or being passive. It is an active, courageous quality that has the ability to positively impact our lives, and the lives of those around us. Kindness can even boost our immune systems, and help us live long, thriving and healthy lives.
Over 4 weeks this June, you will learn the tools and techniques to cultivate compassion in yourself and others, learning to appreciate those who are close to you, and those whom you don’t know, but are connected to you through a shared humanity. The tools which include meditation training are practical and accessible to all.

Relate to yourself and others with greater awareness and care.
