Compassion For A Difficult Person | Short Talk & Guided Practice
One of the most common questions we get asked in the Applied Compassion Training at CCARE | Stanford University is how to practice compassion for the difficult people in our lives. These could be people in our personal or professional lives, or people on the world stage that test our limits when it comes to compassion.

I hope this short talk and guided compassion practice will be of some assistance on your journey of practicing compassion, especially when it's challenging 💚
