    Most of us have no problem feeling sorry for other people when they are in pain. But true compassion comes from a deep, embodied recognition of our shared humanity. In order to accept other people on that deep level, we have to begin by accepting our own humanity, by having compassion for our own suffering. For most people, that’s a real challenge. We are so used to seeing ourselves as wrong, bad, inadequate, and undeserving, that the very idea of offering ourselves compassion sets off waves of resistance.

    When Practice Circle meets on Sunday, December 10, at 6 p.m. Pacific, 8 Central and 9 Eastern, we will practice cultivating the treasure of a compassionate heart. You can join our online practice group here.
