Can you teach people to have empathy? - BBC News

Can you teach people to have empathy? - BBC News | Compassion | Scoop.it
Empathy is a quality that is integral to most people's lives - and yet the modern world makes it easy to lose sight of the feelings of others. But almost everyone can learn to develop this crucial personality trait, says Roman Krznaric.


Open Harper Lee's classic novel To Kill A Mockingbird and one line will jump out at you: "You never really understand another person until you consider things from his point of view - until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it."

  • Make a habit of "radical listening"
  • Look for the human behind everything
  • Become curious about strangers

It's Time to Make Compassion Fashionable

It's Time to Make Compassion Fashionable | Compassion | Scoop.it
Isn't it time to make compassion fashionable, to make kindness cool, to make consideration and care hot topics? Isn't it time for a compassionate revolution?


How can there by peace if we are not at peace with ourselves, if we don't open our hearts to ourselves and to all others, equally?


We have to end the war within ourselves, as it's that inner war that masterminds violence, and make kindness and compassion the means by which we live. We can do this, and we have to do it.

Lessons of Compassion From the Dalai Lama

Lessons of Compassion From the Dalai Lama | Compassion | Scoop.it
The Dalai Lama says that compassion "belongs to that category of emotions which have a more developed cognitive component." Compassion is a blend of empathy and reason. When we practice compassion, we will have more strength, peace, and joy and this will transfer to everyone with whom we associate.


The more compassion we have for others, the more kindness and affection we will obtain. Compassion spreads from one person to another. When you are compassionate to others, they are more willing to be compassionate. For example, one of my good friends unexpectedly bought me dinner the other night. When I came home to my family that evening, I was that much sweeter to them.

Dialogue key to peace, Dalai Lama says at Global Compassion Summit

Dialogue key to peace, Dalai Lama says at Global Compassion Summit | Compassion | Scoop.it
Los Angeles, July 7: Marine Biologists at the University of California, San Diego, have named a new found species in deep ocean water after the Tibetan leader Dalai Lama to mark his 80th birthday celebrated world over on Monday.

Speaking at the second day of the Global Compassion Summit here, the Tibetan spiritual leader said that it is important to create more awareness on environment particularly on Cultivation of land. "When I flew over California I saw lots of area (still) empty (uninhabited) and these (unused lands) can be cultivated.


I (also) aired concern on importance of Desalination some years ago, and some time back I came to know there is a technology that does this. So why don't we make more use of this technology?" asked his Holiness.

Stanford Scientist Proves Compassion Leads to Success

Stanford Scientist Proves Compassion Leads to Success | Compassion | Scoop.it

Stanford University has a whole center dedicated to the science of compassion and altruism. Emma Seppala, Ph.D., is the science director of this center and she has helped scientifically prove compassion is best.

She holds degrees from Yale, Columbia University, and Stanford, and in all of these Ivy league environments she saw high-achievers operating on America’s mistaken concepts of “hard work” and “success.”

“Some of the brightest minds in our country are also deeply unhappy and very, very stressed,” Seppala said.

Cultivating Compassion -

Cultivating Compassion - | Compassion | Scoop.it

Compassion is defined as the feeling of deep sorrow we experience when someone is struck by misfortune, but to feel compassion in our everyday lives is a little harder, writes Candida Baker

Whenever there is a disaster, natural or otherwise, in the world, it does a curious thing – it brings out the best in us. All of us stop for a moment, don’t we, and feel a mixture of gratitude that we and our loved ones are safe, and sorrow for those suffering from the earthquake, tsunami, bushfire, flood, hurricane – or most recently the tragedy in Paris.

It’s then that our natural compassion comes to the fore. And yet, curiously, compassion, the virtue of empathy for the suffering of others, is not necessarily as readily available to us at other times. In our ordinary, everyday lives it seems as if (on the face of it) we have less need of compassion than at those times of crisis, be they family, community, or world-wide.

Compassion: The Rise of Man

Compassion: The Rise of Man | Compassion | Scoop.it
Society shows compassion for the refugees and the homeless magazine sellers, but what about the others? What about those Syrians and Iraqis that we don't see?


Those faceless souls being tortured in The Islamic State hidden away from the media gaze and excluded from public chatter. And how about those homeless people who don't sell magazines? You know the ones, slumped in shop doorways looking downcast, the ones we like to call beggars. Where is the compassion for them? What about the people in life who don't fight for themselves? Either because they can't or won't. Are they somehow less worthy of compassion?


I see the battle for compassion as one of the titanic duals of modern times fought in many arenas. As a species we have evolved greater compassion now than at any time in our recorded history.

Can Compassion Change the World?

Can Compassion Change the World? | Compassion | Scoop.it

By Jill Suttie

Daniel Goleman talks with Greater Good about his new book, A Force for Good: The Dalai Lama's Vision for Our World.


The Dalai Lama has a long history of meeting and collaborating with social scientists—psychologists, neuroscientists, economists, and others looking to understand the science of human emotions and behavior. Through these collaborations, he has learned about the research in this area and has encouraged scientists to pursue fields of inquiry more directly aimed at serving the public good.

A Guide to Cultivating Compassion

A Guide to Cultivating Compassion | Compassion | Scoop.it

by Joanna van der Hoeven

Benefits
Why develop compassion in your life? Well, there are scientific studies that suggest there are physical benefits to practicing compassion — people who practice it produce 100 percent more DHEA, which is a hormone that counteracts the aging process, and 23 percent less cortisol — the “stress hormone.”

But there are other benefits as well, and these are emotional and spiritual. The main benefit is that it helps you to be more happy, and brings others around you to be more happy. If we agree that it is a common aim of each of us to strive to be happy, then compassion is one of the main tools for achieving that happiness. It is therefore of utmost importance that we cultivate compassion in our lives and practice compassion every day....
