COMPASSION IS NOT A LUXURY: Practices of Care in Community
October 6, 2021| 6 PM
As we grapple with the struggles of this time, a growing interest in compassion as a path for healing personal and collective trauma has emerged. When we expand our circle of compassion, we can change social policies that cause inequality, oppression, and environmental harm.
In this talk, Leslie Langbert, executive director of the Center for Compassion Studies, explores the power of compassion done in community, drawing on current theory and research as well as the roots of compassion practices from the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. She will argue that compassion – used for self-care and reciprocal-care – is essential for our survival.
