This video is 13 minutes long, on the subject of Compassion and the true meaning of empathy with Joan Halifax.
In view of Kathy Rose’s indication of new facilitating astrological energies in connection with compassion*, perhaps it is time to re-view the classic TED talk on the subject by Joan Halifax.
In her talk, Joan says that effective compassion requires an essential component – that of not being attached to outcomes – which, if allowed, distorts our ability to be fully present.
Joan states that compassion also has enemies; such as pity, moral outrage, and fear. She also asks a rather unusual question; “Why don’t we train our children in compassion?”Reference:
