Why compassion?

In a world beset with tragedy, injustice, and uncertainty, compassion can provide relief, uplifting our spirits while alleviating the suffering of others.

Numerous studies reveal the health benefits of compassion. Lower stress levels, longer lives, and greater happiness are but a few of the many benefits of practicing compassion. Moreover, it fosters more vibrant, flourishing communities and healthier relationships at home and in professional settings.

Our ultimate aim is to aid in decreasing violence and the trauma it engenders while advancing individual and collective healing and well-being.
