Compassion: Universally Misunderstood

When people hear the word compassion, they tend to think of kindness. But scientific study has found the core of compassion to be courage….

Compassion is not just about kindness or ‘softness’ and it is certainly not a weakness – it is one of the most important declarations of strength and courage known to humanity. It is difficult and powerful, infectious and influential.

And, crucially, is perhaps the only universally recognised language with the ability to change the world.
