Enhance self-compassion & compassion for your clients.

Improve your personal and therapeutic relationships.

Learn compassion skills that you can teach your clients.

We’ll explore the 3 directions of compassion from both eastern philosophical and western psychological perspectives.

compassion for others
self compassion
receiving compassion

Practices will be mindful, meditative, somatic, and energetic,
& will include sessions of “Qi-fusion” (a synthesis of qi-gong, yoga, meditation and sound).

Currently the same neuroscience that confirmed the efficacy of mindfulness is demonstrating the power of compassion practices. A healthy compassionate heart increases resourcefulness, resiliency and happiness.

“Here’s the bottom line: compassion creates a healthy mind.”
Dan Siegel, MD

"I am thrilled to be attending Susan's Compassionate Heart workshop for practitioners in September on Star island. The past workshops with Susan that I have attended provided an opportunity to reflect, observe, relax, laugh and so much more! I always come home with ideas for myself and my clients to use every day. The bonus: doing all this on an island six miles of the New Hampshire coast. The serene beauty is unmatched."

Carol J., LICSW

"Susan has a magical ability to bring a group of strangers together as a community within the first few minutes of the gathering period. She was clear, open, fun and able to lead the group with knowledge of techniques and gentle loving humor”.

Susan Guriano,  Pediatric Nurse

"There are not words for the soul healing blessing that was this time on Star Island. I feel held, loved, nourished, understood. I feel like I know myself and my body so much better now. Thank you."

Kate Smanik, Chaplain

"Susan brought a warm, engaging energy to all her work. Her smile and her attention to all of us created a safe space. The workbook we had was well designed and very useful."

Penny Kaufman,  Clinical Social Worker
