Compassion Salon

If you're interested in compassion / looking for more, do check out the locally based Compassion Salon!

This is a compassionate initiative to facilitate and strengthen community and belonging. The salon I hope will celebrate, inspire and cultivate creativity, innovation, self-compassion and individual and societal wellness.

Each Salon follows a similar format with an author and/or poet and a host who joins the author in an intimate conversation around their work and the meaning of compassion to them.  A poem of the authors choice is read out at the salon by a chosen speaker. This conversation is then opened out to the audience.

The next Salon welcome Julian Abel and Paul Gilbert on the 22nd of October, you can book in (free) here.

Here are a few books on compassion, written with compassion that our booksellers recommend, or come recommended by Marti at the Compassion Salon.
