Creating Compassionate Communities and Playing the Compassion Games
In response to the challenges we face, communities can organize around compassion as the power source of social innovation. In this session, we’ll hear how the Charter for Compassion, has significantly contributed to the growing compassion movement in cities, states, and countries worldwide. Specifically, we’ll share compassion case studies from U.S. cities: Seattle, Austin & New York. We’ll share how the Compassion Games: Survival of the Kindest can get people off the sidelines and onto the field, getting out of their comfort zone and into compassionate action. You’ll learn about 3D compassion which includes caring for others, self and the earth. And, you’ll hear how mindfulness plays a major role in creating safe spaces within communities, which yields more compassionate responses even in difficult conversations.
