Join us for an inspiring evening to explore the science of compassion and how we can put this into practice to create happier lives - for ourselves and others around us.
Professor Paul Gilbert will share the latest research about compassion and how we can use this to live more wisely. He will look at how and why we show compassion to others, but also the importance of being open to receiving compassion and being compassionate towards ourselves too.
"Compassion is one of the most important declarations of strength and courage known to humanity. It is difficult and powerful, infectious and influential. It is a universally recognised motivation with the ability to change the world" ~ Professor Paul Gilbert.
