Each month we highlight some practical resources for therapists interested in compassion. We don’t go into great depth about what we find, but encourage you to check them out if you think they’re interesting.
This month’s find:
Becoming Transparent to the Power of Wisdom and Love: Guided Meditation and Teaching - Guided Meditation from the Foundation for Active Compassion.
This is a guided meditation (beginning around 11:00 minutes on the MP3) to help clients access a felt sense of receiving compassion. The listener is guided to imagine a benefactor - a person, animal, or place offering a sense of warmth and acceptance. The instructions are to invite that compassion energy into every cell of one's body. This practice may be beneficial for clients needing to enhance the ability to receive compassion from others, or the ability to generate feelings of compassion.
