(This is not; however, a Kwan Um sponsored event).
The foundation of this language of compassion is based on the Four Foundations of Mindfulness. Mindfulness is one of the eight of the Eight-fold path, the Fourth of the Four Noble Truths. This language is based on Buddhist psychology. It is a language of no blame, speaking from truth of experience of the human condition, before judgment, before blame, before making good and bad, or right or wrong. It is the language of wanting all sentient beings to get their basic human needs met, no matter what their situation. Conflict of needs is welcomed.
The Four Foundations of Mindfulness as well as Jon Kabat-Zinn’s Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction program will be studied and referred to throughout the series as well as the work of Marshall Rosenberg, the founder of Nonviolent Communication/Authentic Communication and M.K. Ghandi.
