Compassion-Based Professional, Leadership, and Organizational Development for the Health Sector

Why Compassion, Why Now?

In this time of increasing levels of burnout in health, and in recognition of the essential need for social justice in all areas of society, we more than ever need the skills to engage in inner inquiry and cultivate sustainable inner resources.

In this context, the skills to deal with stress, calm the nervous system, and process emotions such as anxiety, fear, anger, and grief while cultivating strength and prosocial qualities such as self-awareness, empathy, and compassion are all the more important. This inner work is not only necessary for self and collective care, but also to co-create more equitable and sustainable health systems.

As global experts in compassion-based interventions, our goal is to serve those who serve us.
