Global Compassion Workshops
A conscious approach to processing world news

How can we increase compassion with others around the world? How can we stay open to what is going on in the world without getting panicked, depressed, or anxious? How can we prevent that more and more people stop reading world news to protect their mental health - which could be an existential threat to democracy?


Do you wish to increase your mental resilience when learning about global challenges and threats through news? These workshops are an exploration into how we can deepen our compassion with others as well as ourselves during our intake of news.

Instead of turning away from what is happening in the world, or consuming news like fastfood and getting stomache ache, lets help our emotional systems to digest what we consume.In Global Compassion workshops, we use the latest neuroscience on emotional regulation to help ourselves and each other process what we read or hear.

It is an invite to shift our consciousness into more global interelatedness - to overcome group thinking and polarisation. At the same time, we practice holding ourselves with understanding and compassion in this process.
The intention of the practice is to provide you with an opportunity to build an inner space of choice, that prevents reactive thoughts about the world situation ("us versus them"; "it is only the fault of...", "everything is lost") and instead becoming more ground and clear-sighted, rooted in your body, more ready for senseful action, as contribution for all.


This work is not designed to replace radical societal change making, in a sense that you will feel better and care less about creating change. Working with compassion on world news in this way can rather support existing action in a stabilizing way, or encourage new action.

I also want to acknowledge that some people will not needs this work as they deal with tough news simply by going fully into value-based action.
