Additional details

Compassion is the quality we most need to heal ourselves as individuals, our deeply polarized and increasingly violent society, and the Earth itself. This simple, yet, deceptively difficult practice has three main ingredients: The ability to see suffering clearly (one’s own, that of others, and that of the Earth’s); the ability to open to suffering with kindness and care; and, lastly, to follow the naturally arising impulse to act with wisdom and skill on behalf of the afflicted. Jack Hannibal, a former acting teacher turned psychotherapist, presentation coach and mindfulness meditation teacher, will share his own story of coming to compassion as well as guide the CreativeMorning’s audience through a series of meditation-based compassion exercises.
