Dr. Tino Bernadett and Martha Bernadett Believe in Cultivating Compassion
There are many ways to maintain or even start adopting a positive mindset. It is not always the easiest path out there, and that is precisely what makes it a beautiful journey.
One of the lesser-known ways to encourage positivity within yourself, and hopefully around you, are through cultivating compassion.
Cultivating compassion can be quite overwhelming in itself, but what exactly does it mean? In a sense, it is all about understanding your own pain and suffering, as well as being open to the pain and suffering of others. To do it, being compassionate in your attention, thinking, feeling, and behavior must be done.
Adopting to these changes can be tough, as you will be required to make a lot of adjustments, but the good thing is that the process is not supposed to rush you.
A good place to start cultivating compassion is to take mediation training. Mediation is all about bringing together people to settle and work on a discourse with the ultimate goal of achieving a resolution, compromise, or agreement.
CCEJ’s Cultivating Compassion Mediation Training Initiative
The California Conference for Equality and Justice (CCEJ) is leading a relationship-centric training event that is geared on introducing the core principles and methods of Alternative Dispute Resolution. The event encourages participants to get involved in understanding conflict resolution theories, as well as learn, and develop techniques in resolving disputes in interpersonal relationships, in the workplace, and within the community.
The learnings will be based on ABA guidelines and is in line with the standards of the California Dispute Resolution Programs Act (DRPA).
The program is supported by Dr. Tino Bernadett and wife Martha Molina Bernadett, who are known for their humanitarian advocacy. The couple were proud recipients of CCEJ’s Humanitarian Award in the 52nd Annual CCEJ dinner held in 2020.
