The Buddhist Approach to Compassion Fatigue

According to Buddhism, compassion is not a source of stress. It’s actually the very essence of a spiritual life that brings about only peace and joy. So, why do we experience “compassion fatigue” and feel so drained by our concern for others?

While it’s often quite challenging to care for others continually, and common to end up feeling depleted, that doesn’t have to be our experience.

By deconstructing our compassion and conjoining it with wisdom, we can renew our energy and find the strength to carry on. In fact, rather than causing more pain, our compassion will heal our pain. Rather than feeling heavy, it empowers us to help others.

Led by Gen Kelsang Tsoglam, Buddhist nun and Resident Teacher. Includes a brief teaching, guided meditation, and time for Q&A. Suitable for all levels of experience.

Everyone is welcome!
