NEW YEAR’S NEWS

From now on, the International Compassion Community is accessible to everyone who wants to live and work attentively and compassionately

To be more inclusive, it is now also possible to become a member and participate free of charge. This is only possible through the generosity of people who can afford it and who take out a paid subscription to facilitate the organization of the community (organizational coordination, planning, website, ICT).

The teachers are paid on a donation basis, so that you can donate per evening what suits your situation and what suits your experience of the guidance. In the Buddhist tradition this is called dana (practicing generosity).

Any amount is okay and helps to continue providing the daily meditations.

You can donate via this link or by scanning the QR code above.
 

Invite a friend, collaegue or family member to join the community.

A few tips before you join us in meditation:

 

  • Regular meditation practice strengthens: focus, self-awareness and mental-emotional balance. It also augments qualities of mildness and compassion for self and others. The scientific evidence for this is now robust. These results can already be observed when meditating 2-3 times/week. However, when beginning your practice try not to set the bar too high and see what is feasible for you and your schedule.

  • Our team of teachers of the International Compassion Community is very diverse. They differ greatly in terms of background in contemplative traditions and meditation practice and styles. Some guided meditations are mindfulness or compassion meditations, other meditations come more from the Buddhist or advaita vedanta tradition. We advise you to explore various teachers to see which forms are accessible and helpful to you. So don’t give up after one time, but give yourself the space to find meditation styles and teachers who inspire you.

  • Lastly, meditation does not always have to feel good to be good for you. When we step back and reflect on all experiences as they are, we naturally encounter life in all its forms; discomfort and unrest included: physical, emotional or mental. This is very common and says nothing about the quality of your meditation. What you are practicing is to also be at ease with agitation and discomfort and not immediately turn away from it. This contributes to your resilience and inner balance and developing your personal style comfortably

If you have questions about the practice, please email us: icc@ccmm.care or attend to one of our monthly Q&A sessions.
