Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life by Karen Armstrong

A process for developing personal compassion to engage in compassionate community for a more compassionate world

Welcome to Compassionate Sunday. We’re working through Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life by Karen Armstrong, one step per month.

If you’d like to share a post about what you learned about compassion (The First Step), what you’re seeing in your world (The Second Step), self-compassion (The Third Step), empathy (The Fourth Step), mindfulness (The Fifth Step), action (The Sixth Step), how little we know (The Seventh Step), how to speak to one another (The Eighth Step), concern for everybody (The Ninth Step), knowledge (The Tenth Step), or recognition (The Eleventh Step) use the link list below. Or join the discussion in the comments or on Facebook.

In the Northern Hemisphere of the planet, we celebrate the returning light while the Southern Hemisphere enjoys the longest days of their year. My reflection on the Eleventh Step, Recognition, last week led to contemplation of the divine light in each of us.

Light, flame, spark. These are beautiful realities and metaphors to celebrate and contemplate at this time of the year.

Wherever you’re located and whatever holiday you celebrate, I recognize you. I appreciate that you are reading these words. I write them with compassion for you. I wish for you and those you love much happiness on this day.
