Compassion is about developing capacity and space, for self and for others. It is the capacity to comfort, soothe and motivate ourselves when we suffer, fail, or feel inadequate. A compassionate attitude can greatly reduce the distress that people feel in difficult situations and become a valuable personal resource in times of stress. Developed by teachers trained at Stanford CCARE.
