TC349: Cafe Book Club presents The Book of Joy – Pillar 7:Compassion

In this week’s podcast, host Robin Masiewicz and co-host Amy Front continue their discussion of “The Book of Joy”. This week we focus on Pillar 7: Compassion – Something We Want to Become

Compassion – All traditions carry the same message: the message of love. Compassion is a sense of concern that arises when we are confronted with another’s suffering and feel motivated to see that suffering relieved. It connects the feeling of empathy to acts of kindness, generosity and other altruistic tendencies.

According to the research, we are hard-wired to want to relieve the suffering of others.

Can compassion be taught?

How is compassion related to joy and happiness?
