Summary

What if you knew that compassion was the antidote to healing our hurt, hate-filled world? Would you know how to use it in every circumstance, with family, friends, and strangers alike? Would you be open to doing so, even when it involved acts that may seem unforgivable? Would you be willing to be gentle and sympathetic with yourself?

If you're like many people, your heart desires to be compassionate, yet your head may simply not possess the blueprint for saying those right words at the right time, or for seeing things from a compassionate perspective rather than a judgmental one. After all, we're a product of our upbringing and societal norms, and we're not necessarily taught precisely what living compassionately looks like.

The Compassion Code will completely change that. This accessible, wisdom-filled book is the result, addressing topics such as:

  • Knowing what to say - and not to say - when someone is grieving
  • Understanding when to talk and when to simply listen
  • Relating kindly to ourselves
  • Recognizing that everyone has a story
  • Dealing with compassion fatigue
  • Acknowledging instead of "fixing" others with our responses
  • Practicing compassion in daily life with self, other adults, children, and teens

The Compassion Code awakens the kindheartedness that resides in all of us, urging it to stand strong as we navigate life events that can cause pain, misunderstandings, fear, hatred, and even war. With heartfelt, relatable stories, compassion coaching tips, and abundant loving action steps - the book is an invaluable guide for how to shift our mindset, diminish hurtful viewpoints, and embrace the humanity in each of us.

Worth the read

I really enjoyed this book and the perspective. I think this is a good book for any health care or human services worker to read. I also think it is a great book if you're active in therapy or wanting to hold more compassion for yourself and others. I really enjoyed the perspective on grief and considering that everyone has their own perspective on grief with anything they've lost.

A must-listen for life!

The Compassion Code brings to light old ways of thinking that we are often unaware of and replaces them with new paradigms to view people who are different from us. This book offers practical suggestions of how to act and respond in tough situations. What an impact we would have on the world if we all used these tools! This is a must-read for everyone.
