In this webinar, Helle will share how compassion is inherent in Heartfulness, and how we as heartfulness practitioners can benefit from using it more explicit on the spiritual path. Compassion can be very supportive in calming down our mind and our emotional reactivity, and in moving toward self-acceptance. Even though meditation helps us soothing the mind, we can still become reactive or caught up in emotions. Our human mind seems to challenge us constantly with our everyday thoughts, wishes, likes, and dislikes. One key to quieting the mind is to cultivate a warmer relationship with ourselves as well as our thoughts and habitual reactivity. Opening the heart to our emotional reactivity, lets our heart melt again and again in the face of experienced suffering. Turning toward an acceptance of our inner experience, rather than trying to change it, can bring about a deep and profound change. Compassion is an emotional attitude wishing to alleviate suffering in all beings, including the suffering in ourselves.
