We are delighted to have the authors of the book “Cultivating Compassion” (download here) present over the next few months to the community.

This Sunday we invite Stephen Hill to share his learnings from his chapter “From Self To Our Shared Humanity”.

Stephen asks us to consider the following questions:

  1. Do you have any reason to emphasise the importance of concentration on the self and self-concern over unconditional loving kindness to all?
  2. Are there situations where exercising compassion is particularly difficult?
  3. Do you feel that acceptance of suffering is important for having a good life? If you can, perhaps you can share your own experience of suffering and how you handled it.
