CREATING A CULTURE OF COMPASSION

CREATING A CULTURE OF COMPASSION | Social Neuroscience Advances | Scoop.it

How can leaders model compassion like Jesus and create a culture of compassion? Here are some thoughts.


1. Listen.

The power of active listening is one of the most effective compassion tools we have. We can all listen to someone who just needs to download all their heart to someone. Take time and energy to listen. Schedule time in your day to be available to people. Open the door to your office and you’ll be amazed at how much more approachable people become when they see that you set the example that you put a high value on listening to others.

Meditating on compassion brings change

Meditating on compassion brings change | Social Neuroscience Advances | Scoop.it

The term “monkey mind” describes me perfectly. There’s always something clamoring for attention up there.


My attempts at meditation usually went something like this: Deep breath in, deep breath out, hmmm ... do I need to add money to Ben’s lunch account? Speaking of lunch, what will I eat today — a salad or sandwich? Gosh, 20 minutes is a long time to sit here.

Novel brain-scanning technique maps flow of visual information in brain with unique accuracy

Every time you open your eyes, visual information flows into your brain, which interprets what you're seeing. Now, for the first time, MIT neuroscientists have noninvasively mapped this flow of information in the human brain with unique accuracy, using a novel brain-scanning technique.

Looking at every synapse in the brain is breathtakingly beautiful

If you look at the wires behind your entertainment console, you're going to see different colors tangled up with different things leading to different places you forgot existed. It's an awful ugly mess. Seeing the brain is like that, only the opposite because in its chaos is beauty. Just look at the 3D brain scan above that shows every synapse, it's like a 3D Jackson Pollock painting.

Idiot Compassion and the Power of Sorrow

Idiot Compassion and the Power of Sorrow | Social Neuroscience Advances | Scoop.it
When we clamp down on our inner experience or avoid emotions, the path to kindness is also obscured. Kindness toward others is actually synonymous with kindness toward self.


Compassion is an inner stance, not an external pose. We can only know the difference through an ongoing connection to our own heart. When we allow ourselves to feel, it is possible to detect what is most compassionate in any situation. When we are afraid to feel, it is not. So one could say that when we lean into our heart of hearts, we discover the fount of kindness. When we clamp down on our inner experience or avoid emotions, the path to kindness is also obscured. Kindness toward others is actually synonymous with kindness toward self.
