Developing compassion is like playing a musical instrument – it’s a skill that can be enhanced with dedicated practice.

Feeling love and compassion for ourselves and others is deeply healing and soothing, and helps us face the many challenges that will come our way.

  1. I’ve just read the kindle sample of this book. Really disappointing. Most of chapter 1 is dedicated to the author’s rant against capitalism, in the most polarised, extreme terms. Almost nothing was said about compassion, which is the value I was looking for in this book.

    I have mixed feelings about continuing to read this. On the one hand, I want to read the evidence-based side of compassion, blended with the Buddhist tradition. But it’s just so poor, so far.
