Compassionate Innovation Workshop
Are you a healthcare provider, social worker, or social innovator who wants to make a difference in the lives of your patients or users? Do you at times find it difficult to empathize with your users' ills without becoming emotionally overwhelmed or even burnt out?
In this workshop, you will learn highly practical tools to not only avoid empathy fatigue but to also become empowered to create innovative services and programs that radically improve the circumstances of your stakeholders—regardless of how difficult their situation might be.
In a hands-on, engaging, and safe environment, we will explore creative processes like design thinking and social innovation, along with contemplative practices such as mindfulness, compassion, and lovingkindness meditation.
All of our contemplative methods have been rigorously researched through neuroscience and have been proven to help you empathize and gain deep compassion for people’s suffering, all while retaining important doses of inner strength, empowerment, and equanimity.
