Why a Compassion Lab?
Across this post-pandemic world we live and work in an environment that has been referred to as ‘perma-crisis’. Things will likely always be in a state of flux and change and uncertainty will guide our best response. In these times we can easily become disregulated and anxious. If your team is feeling a sense of overwhelm, a Compassion Lab is a perfect place to begin the recovery.
Who is it for?
Our Labs are designed for people who want to develop their skills, expand their leadership offering, build resilience and strengthen their emotional intelligence. We work with executives, administrators, clinicians, front-line staff and those behind the scenes.
You want to work with more compassion, towards yourself, your colleagues, your clients or patients, even in difficult times? Compassion Lab expands what is possible.
How many people in a Lab?
Between 12—26 people make up a Compassion Lab. Bring people from across your organisation.
Each Compassion Lab is different but the practice of compassion is at the heart of all we do.
You can expect a Compassion Lab to include learning in the following areas:
- how the mind and body work in stressful situations;
- the impact of trauma;
- the way we regulate our emotions;
- the difference between empathy, sympathy and compassion;
- how to manage the voice of self criticism;
- how to develop a more loving relationship with ourselves;
- the most productive way to handle difficult conversations;
- the practice of gratitude;
- enlisting mindfulness;
- experiencing generosity;
- building cohesive teams.
Importantly you’ll have plenty of time to experience new ideas, no ringing phones, no meetings, no interruptions.
Compassion Labs are run either over one day in person in a venue where we all gather together, or online—135 minutes each week for three weeks.
