Mindfulness & Compassion Global Summit
There seems to be little focus on compassion in popular culture. It's a good thing without nearly enough positive reinforcement.
We are on our own learning how to be compassionate and learning the powerful benefits of doing so.
American Buddhist teacher Sharon Salzberg has been teaching compassion for many years. She's the co-founder of the Insight Meditation Society (dharma.org) in Barre, Massachusetts. She will be leading a Post-Summit Daylong Training: Training Yourself for a Lifetime of Compassion.
This live online event will be held on Sunday, June 7 from 10:00 am-4:00 pm PDT. And participants will be able to watch the training for two weeks after the live presentation.

Scientific research into the benefits of compassion has found that being compassionate can improve health, well-being, and relationships. Many scientists believe that compassion may be vital to the survival of our species. Its advantages can be increased through targeted exercises and practice.
Sharon Salzberg leads this daylong training, emphasizing compassion for ourselves and others. She guides attendees through compassion exercises that develop greater concentration, an expanded sense of connection, skills to deal with anger, fear, and frustration, and a better sense of balance in taking care of ourselves and others.
She has been a pioneer in popularizing mindfulness meditation in the U.S. over the past 40 years as a much sought-after teacher of these practices.
