If you want to be happy…

Russell Brand knows what its like to experience mental illness and substance use disorder.  The flow of compassion – from us to others, from others to us and from us to ourselves – has tremendous benefits.  Compassion is a primary focus of my work in Compassion Focused Therapy.  As the Dalai Lama is often quoted…

“If you want others to be happy, practice compassion.
If you want to be happy, practice compassion.”

This seems like the perfect place to start this new online adventure so I’ll just leave this here.  I’d love to hear your thoughts and experiences with compassion.  Feel free to leave a comment.
