Compassion is the capacity to feel concern with pain and suffering, our own as well as “others”. It involves the wish to relieve this pain and suffering and also the willingness to take on responsibility in doing so. It is a universal human quality, inherently present to everyone, but for many reasons, often not fully cultivated. Fortunately, compassion can be developed and deepened through practice, and this is the aim of compassion training.
Every human being has the ability to be compassionate. However, for many reasons, this quality can often not be fully expressed. Through training and regular practice, compassion can be developed and deepened, which is the aim of the MBCL program.
