Unlocking your key to compassion

Online only

Online Recovery College Courses (18+)

Coming Soon

This course explores some of the challenges involved in putting compassion into practice. The meaning of compassion will be discussed, and learners will explore compassion in themselves and others. Our own negative feelings, such as anger and guilt, can prevent us showing our compassion. Compassion can be likened to the sun; it is always there but sometimes it cannot shine through because of the clouds. The clouds are the negativity that obscures our true nature of compassion. Learners can apply their learning to their lives and take this forward in a suitable plan of action for the future.

This workshop is part of a ‘Values in Self-care’ series aimed at providing participants with the opportunity to explore, experience and develop spiritual tools (meditation, visualisation, appreciation, listening, play, creativity, and reflection) to enhance their inner strength and wellbeing, in a safe and relaxed setting by a trained and experienced tutor.

The series is running for 8 weeks and you can either book on to this session as a one off or multiple weeks by booking them separately.
