Hello friends. Welcome to Compassionate Nation, a site where all people from all walks of life, all political parties, all sexual orientations, all ethnicities, all religious or spiritual or scientific beliefs are welcome to co-exist in peace.
Our goals in running this site are as follows: 1) To provide information on practices and research known to promote deeper levels of compassion, (such as mindfulness meditation). 2) To discuss subjects concerning the state of our nation and our world in a safe and respectful place, with the goal of brainstorming peaceful solutions. 3) To teach Yoga, from the heart, as my gift to you.
Our intention is that this site, in some small or large way, will help to facilitate the growth of universal human compassion. That we may come together, hand in hand, to pull each other up and out of fear, shame, anger, guilt, sorrow, and insanity and lift each other up to the endless possibilities of unconditional love, compassion, and empathy.
We welcome those who are interested in posting an article to Compassionate Nation to contact us through the contact page of this site. We see this as a community building project and we wish to incorporate the voices of many.
Thank you for being here.
Jean and Dustin
