‘Remember that just as a bird needs two wings to fly, wisdom and compassion must be developed simultaneously’ - Ancient saying
What is wisdom?
How is it viewed in the West from a scientific research perspective, and in the East from Buddhist psychology?
How can we cultivate wisdom, and what is the value of cultivating wisdom?
In this webinar, we will explore these questions in theory, and in practice through interpersonal mindfulness practice. Highlighting how this can contribute to a greater sense of 'we-together' rather than 'me-first' or 'you-first'.
This event is offered in collaboration with the Mindfulness Network Community Friends (MNCF) - an initiative to engage the wider mindfulness community and reach new audiences. Led by a Committee of Volunteers, supported by the Mindfulness Network, we work together to run a programme of donation-based events and inspiring content. The Committee ensures that the MNCF can best serve everyone by providing opportunities to practice and learn together.
