The Art of Compassionate Living

Practical methods for developing loving kindness, empathy and joy


Although kindness and compassion are basic human qualities, it is not always easy to embody them in our lives, especially in today’s hectic, fast-paced world.

It is actually possible to actively cultivate compassion, bringing major benefits for our health and well-being as well as our relationships with family, friends and colleagues.

This course will present simple ways to develop our empathy and compassion for ourselves and those around us—at home, at work and in every aspect of our lives.

It will dispel some of the myths about compassion and reveal how through cultivating our natural capacity for compassion, we can discover the strength and resilience to meet challenges head-on and to lead more meaningful and fulfilling lives.

This exploration of empathy and compassion will include instruction in compassion practices from the Buddhist tradition but will be conducted in a spirit of open enquiry and so will be relevant for those of any spiritual tradition or none.

Open to all.


The program will be held on Tuesday evenings from 7pm to 9.00pm starting on 21st February 2017 for 8 consecutive sessions.
