The 6th Stage in your Journey to Compassion

Compassion is the final stage of Journey to Compassion. In this course, we complete the presentation of tonglen, sending and taking practice. We also continue our training in exchanging self for others by combining it with breath awareness practice, learning to overcome obstacles, and practicing boundless compassion in everyday life situations. Lessons include:

  • Leave behind prejudice and apply compassion unconditionally
  • Avoid empathy burnout, and learn why true compassion is limitless
  • Gain a subtler understanding of this thing we call ‘self’
  • Experience the self as being part of a greater whole
  • Discover the meaning of bodhisattva, one who aspires to be awake
  • Recognize why all beings everywhere are worthy of compassion

Ralph on the Journey to well-being

Ralph – Engineer, retired

I have known for many years that the persona I present is not truly aligned with the real me, which I sense but do not really know. I believe that this journey will help me to discover and embrace the real me, and give me the confidence to express it.

Alice has greatly appreciated Mindworks courses

Alice Keech – Practice Assistant

Your team and your courses have changed mine and my family’s life for the better. I am truly humbled by how we have not only weathered some challenging situations but in the course of deepening our understanding of ourselves, we have come out the other side stronger than before. Thank you for showing me how to love life again; and even more so during challenging times.

Before Mindworks, I was a meditation slacker. Now my practice has improved exponentially. It calls me to the cushion every morning.
