Naropa Mindful Compassion Training: WELCOME An Offering to Naropa Alumnx
Compassion opens and expands our minds and hearts, inspiring kindness and altruistic behavior. Current research suggests that compassion can be intentionally cultivated to enhance personal well-being, resilience, and capacity to benefit others. This is because training in compassion reduces empathy fatigue, improves emotion regulation, and fosters healthy social connection.
Naropa’s WELCOME Training offers a pathway to foster mindfulness alongside lovingkindness for yourself, loved ones, and even the difficult people in our lives. Drawing on scientific research findings from neuroscience and psychology, as well as practices and teachings from Buddhism, WELCOME provides a multifaceted view of the power and potential of compassion. Throughout the course, you will be introduced to a series of experiential practices, receive informative suggested readings, and engage in compassionate “fieldwork” to integrate compassion into your personal, social and professional life
Join faculty for synchronous sessions for discussion, q&a and guided practices (these sessions will be recorded as well).
