In their book Compassionomics, scientists Stephen Trzeciak and Anthony Mazzarelli ask the question of whether compassion can be taught and learned. At the Center for Contemplative Science and Compassion-Based Ethics at Emory University, Lobsang Tenzin Negi developed cognitive-based Compassion Training, which he calls “a model for a secular compassion meditation practice drawn from the vast, varied Tibetan Buddhist tradition.” If compassion can be nurtured, let’s join together and consider some of the ways in which Professor Negi suggests. Community Minister Rev. Alex Steinert-Evoy will lead us in a discussion of the research as we consider our own definitions of compassion. Together, we will look at ways we might cultivate compassion towards ourselves and others in 2021.
