The Practice and Science of Compassion

Stillness in Motion Yoga invites you to join their latest special event, Compassion Connection on 25 August, 12pm to 3pm.

Compassion Connection will be facilitated by Cultivating Emotional Balance (CEB) teachers Rob Milan & Kirsti Kilbane (mental health social worker) and explores the practice and science of compassion.


When faced with hardship people often turn to social supports the bolstering affect of this is life-enhancing. As more of the world connect on social media, however, the irony is that we are somehow more isolated than before.

Another method, and one which we will work on in this workshop, is increasing that sense of connection by increasing our own pro-social attitude of compassion the feeling that arises when confronted with suffering and wishing to relieve it. As seen in the definition the compassionate attitude also provides us with a means to be with difficulty without withdrawing or pushing away a key to resilience and our own well being.


Compassion Connection is open to all and forms part of the CEB course which draws from the wisdom of contemplative meditation practices and emotional research.

The participation fee is $45 per person and bookings are essential as places are strictly limited.
