Do you wish you could feel more engaged and connected with the world around you, but worry that doing so will leave you feeling drained and demoralized?
Would you like to have the energy and life force to face any challenge or difficult emotion and KNOW that you'll come out stronger on the other side?
COMPASSION makes it all possible.
You may have heard (or felt yourself) that "compassion fatigue" is causing many people in modern society to feel burnt out, hopeless, and wishing to withdraw from the world to protect their own mindset. This is actually the fatigue of over-empathizing.
Empathy is the capacity to feel what another is feeling physically and emotionally through the mirror neurons throughout our bodies.
What if, instead of Compassion being a source of anxiety and stress, it became an unlimited source of energy, grace, and freedom?
- Compassion is Love from Source.
- Compassion is Love without a story.
- Compassion gives energy, perspective, and the capacity for profound love with skillful boundaries.
Compassion is a diamond with many facets. We will explore five doorways of practicing with compassion, one each week – Perspective, Forgiveness, Reciprocity, Consent, and Self-Awareness.
I'm Scott Schwenk, and over the past 30 years, I've been practicing and teaching the alchemy of compassion - a way to radically transform your experience of and connection with the world in a way that leaves you feeling stronger, more capable, and fully awake to life's possibilities.
Over the course of 5 weeks, we will take a journey through recognizing, living from and embodying the power of Compassion.
