Class Experience

It may feel easier to offer others nurturing and compassion, however, it’s so important to make sure that we focus on our own self care in order to have the energy to continue doing so.  If you are a health care professional, you probably have heard of the term “compassion fatigue”.  This concept applies to those not only in the medical profession.  Many of us have put off our own loving-kindness practices in recent years and it is important to make time for ourselves too.  This activity includes a guided meditation, then a journal based contemplative art activity to help bring us to a better awareness of what it means to offer compassion to ourselves as a loving practice that can be done at any time.
