Compassion Camp - week 2

The theme this weekend and next Wednesday at the park is showing lovingkindness by having self-compassion.
Like lots of things, for kids to learn this young will set them up to hopefully step into adulthood in a healthy place or at least having tools that they can use to help get there.

Compassion says:
I see you hurt,
I feel your hurt,
I help to ease your hurt.
Self-compassion is doing that for ourselves.

Self-compassion asks the question, what do I need? Hopefully there will be some tools that you can pick up this week to help figure out where you are at, and what it is that you need.

I talk more about self-compassion on the video and tell the story of Elijah as he learned to look after himself and realized that God was looking after him too.

VIDEO FOR WEEK 2

Watch to the end of the video for this week’s compassion challenge.

BONUS (not on the video): Can you think of fives ways you can grow in compassion? For yourself or someone else?

This week's song is called, Loved, I am loved.

Join us for compassion camp LIVE on Wednesday at Ellwood Park at 5pm for a picnic, making, games, yoga and lovingkindess practice. Hope to see you there!
