Welcome to join a conversation on the role of self-inquiry, compassion for self and others, the roots of bias and injustices as well as the enablers of resilience and well-being. Explore the meaning for you of values such as Humanity, Inclusion, Power, Justice, Interconnection and see how these can be embodied as we build resilience.
A key concern is how we could learn to nourish ourselves more from our values for the benefit of ourselves and others?
This CBRT course includes three free-of-charge outreach sessions to aid workers active in crisis response, peace building and poverty reduction work: Humanity from the Inside Out-Aid Worker Outreach, scheduled for Thursdays: May 6, 13, 20, (during the compassion weeks of the training) at 4 PM CET
Departing from an encompassing definition of humanitarianism, as the wish to promote the well-being of others, this CBRT pilot course offers spaces to reflect and to exchange with peers on positive and negative social-emotional experiences as humanitarians.
The training aims to build community and mutual support by creating a space for sharing experiences of both stress, fear, anger, loss, sorrow, and cynism as well as those of connection, solidarity, common humanity, moral outrage, compassion and social justice.
Heads up: this initiative starts with You as a person focusing on your self-inquiry and personal-healing and then expands this focus to social healing through your close social circles as well as social-emotional experiences in the work space as humanitarians. In short our focus moves from the personal, to the social and professional.
We will ask the WHY, HOW, WHAT, WHEN and WHO questions of humanitarian humanity, starting with a focus on ourselves and our experiences, moving outwards in an aspiration to more embody the full meaning of humanity.
Participants are encouraged to share experiences of using contemplative practices, learned in CBRT and elsewhere, to increase work motivation and well-being in the midst of stressors and an embodied humanitarianism.
We will explore sector-specific realities, challenges and lived experiences within crisis response and poverty reduction work related to the science of stress, compassion and resilience. Topics are collectively chosen (poll).
We will discuss the myths about both stress and compassion and learn what modern science has to say about human nature and our potential for change, resilience and socially engaged prosocial life.
You are warmly welcome to join a contemplative space for building resilience, connection and compassion joy as a humanitarian community.
