The Event
Compassion is the empathic desire to alleviate suffering and it’s often thought of as the highest form of love. Compassion flows from the interconnectedness between humans and is inherent to any successful spiritual process. Not only is compassion part of the solution for psychological suffering, science is increasingly revealing that compassion rewires brainwave patterns which support our overall well-being. Compassion is directly linked to changes in physiological processes that improve our immune systems. Scientific evidence further highlights that self-compassion is critical in the management of stress and relationships. This one-day workshop illuminates the neurobiological phenomenon of compassion, and inspires us to engage in mindful compassionate practice for our own well-being as well as for the people around us.

Participants will develop an understanding of:

  • The connection between compassion and early childhood attachment.
  • The science of mindfulness and its impact upon the brain and the body’s physiology.
  • The impact of compassion upon our relational skills and interactions.
  • Everyday habits and mindful steps that enhance compassionate living.

We’ve chosen to host this event in an intimate setting to facilitate community and connection. This will allow for a focused and close experience of both the topic and our lovely (inside and out) Guide. This also means that this much anticipated event will sell out quickly, as our maximum seating is 50 students.
Your registration will be complete upon receipt of your tuition (way smaller than college tuition!).
Please make checks out to Laurie Warren and mail to P.O. Box 545, Norfolk, MA 02056.

The Guide
Kim Barthel is a world-renowned teacher and occupational therapist, actively supporting multi-disciplinary function and healing in many cultures. A pioneer in reinforcing the importance of relationship in therapy and education, Kim is known for blending cutting-edge developments in neuroscience with the art of intuitive inquiry. She most often teaches on topics related to mental health, attachment, sensory processing, complex behaviour, addiction, autism, developmental disorders and trauma. To empower personal reflection, Kim recently co-authored the national best-seller Conversations with a Rattlesnake with NHL hockey legend Theo Fleury. A GREAT read and an immensely instructive book, if you haven’t read it yet. And that’s only the highlights! Her mission is to support the conscious evolution of the human spirit…and she’s coming all the way from British Columbia to join us. We’re excited to be hosting Kim for this special, intimate day of learning and connection. I’ve had a personal and professional relationship with Kim spanning a decade and she’s the real deal—a truly loving, inspiring, and brilliant woman.
