A Day of Compassion Cultivation

Compassion can help you skillfully navigate the hardships of daily life, and it can bring more joy into your life. Spend a day with Sara Schairer, senior facilitator of Compassion Cultivation Training (developed at Stanford University) and founder of Compassion It, diving into mindfulness, self-compassion, and compassion. You'll gain skills that help you stay open-hearted and present during difficult moments, and you'll also learn to connect more fully with people around you, including those who challenge you.
