A warm welcome to Compassionate Wellbeing! We host events, and support research and activities that promote and explore compassionate approaches to health, wellbeing and society. We run public workshops, which introduce some of the theories and techniques developed by leading figures in the field of compassion research and practise. These workshops aim to provide a relaxed and supportive atmosphere in which you can learn how to utilise the benefits of compassionate for yourself and others. Alongside these experiential workshops, we are also developing a series of conferences that will explore a range of issues concerning compassion and wellbeing.For more information, contact us at compassion_well@hotmail.co.uk
