COVID-19 UPDATE: Individual coaching and group programs are currently being delivered online through Zoom and the heart life app

When people face individual and collective challenges, they look for relief. Compassion is a process of noticing and actively responding to suffering, both for self and others. While this is a natural human response, there are many reasons why and instances where people don’t notice or respond. Compassion training helps participants build awareness and the ability to take action without feeling overwhelmed. This supports personal resilience and a culture of compassion that contributes to wellbeing on a bigger scale. A personalized approach to individual coaching and group training means every program is designed to meet the specific needs and context where it is delivered.
