Welcome to the Compassion Module, Part Two!
On this page you’ll find links to information, meditations and practices designed to help you to learn about and develop more mindful awareness. Please explore the steps of this page in order; you’ll be introduced to Mindful Awareness, then guided through some practices so you can try it for yourself!
Step 1: Watch the video below.
Step 2: Choose a meditation from the ‘heart’ section, and try it.
Step 3: Watch some of the videos in the gallery in the ‘Head’ section, read some of the articles, or listen to the podcasts.
Step 4: Explore the ‘on-the-go’ practices in the ‘hand’ section. Try to practice one of these each day this week.
Step 5: Connect with others. Sharing our experiences is a way we can support each other, build community, and deepen our understanding. Please write a discussion post about your experiences, observations, or challenges in the discussion forum, and consider responding supportively to someone else.
Now you’ve watched this introductory video, let’s try some of the mindfulness-building techniques! Try to do exercises in each of the categories of Heart, Head and Hand.
Here is a selection of guided meditations. Try to do one of these at least five days a week. You can do the same one over and over, or you can try different ones.
Here’s a library and video gallery about mindfulness, intended to explain what mindfulness is, why it is helpful, and to inspire you to try it. Take a look or listen – do any of these inspire you?
Take a look at these videos; the first one is the shortest and most accessible, and the others are all really helpful for learning about self-compassion, and finding ways of overcoming obstacles to our self-compassion.
Here are four different self-compassion-on-the-go exercises for you to try. Watch the instructions and give them a try!
