The Gift of Compassion
Welcome to the podcast - I am so pleased that you joined me here today! I am your host Elena Bensonoff. As you settle in to listen today, take a moment to relax with a few deep breaths. Inhale strength and love, and exhale worries and tension. Perfect! Now that you have connected with yourself again, let’s begin!
We are approaching the holiday season of one of the busiest and strangest years that many of us have experienced. You may be feeling the pressure to complete tasks, meet the needs of your family, or even just find time for some self care. Regardless of where you find yourself today or what your priorities are, I want to share a powerful method for spreading love and joy especially during hectic times. It is the gift of compassion. If we had one gift to give ourselves and those around us, it would be compassion. I’d like to explore today what compassion is and is not, how compassion changes us, and then offer you some real life examples of how we can practice compassion this season and beyond.
Thank you so much for taking the time to listen today and explore the gift of compassion. I appreciate you and the ways you show up every day being the best version of you there is! If you would like to learn more about my work, you can find me over at wholistic.com. Until next time - be well and hold compassion close to your heart.
