Global Institute for Compassionate Dialogue is a community where people from different countries with different perspectives and cultural backgrounds share a common space for dialogue, to celebrate the diversity and to feel the richness that is present within a deeply connected community.
Dialogue is a process in which we learn to hold our beliefs and assumptions and process the ideas of others with an open mind. Compassion is caring for others and requires empathy. It is easier when we feel a deep sense of connection with others. So in a compassionate dialogue, we try to feel the connection and with "caring for the whole" value, we create an environment where deep listening, with understanding and resolution of conflicts becomes possible.
