Compassion is one of twelve mindful themes that help us live a more meaningful life. This month we've gathered all of our favorite research, writing, quotes, reflection questions, and discussion topics for our Compassion Guide.

How can we connect meaningfully with others? How can we be more kind, generous, and empathetic in our conversations? How can we see beyond ourselves? What does it really mean to love others (and ourselves)?

To our members who receive a physical mailer, you will be receiving your guide with this month's kit. To our digital members, you can download your guide via the link below.

Our Themes

Distilled from our Manifesto, positive psychology, the science of mindfulness, and ancient philosophic studies we have identified twelve themes core to living both fully and mindfully. We mapped these twelve themes to each of the twelve months in a year. Together with our community we explore one each month.
