Compassion is often seen as a distant, altruistic ideal cultivated by saints, or as an unrealistic response of the naively kind-hearted. But by seeing compassion in this way, we lose out on experiencing the transformative potential of one of our most neglected inner resources.Clinical psychologist and Tibetan Buddhist practitioner Dr. Lorne Ladner rescues compassion from this marginalized view, showing how its practical application in our life can be a powerful force in achieving happiness. Ladner provides a clear explanation of what healthy compassion is and why it is so essential to our lives. Combining the wisdom of Tibetan Buddhism and Western psychology, The Lost Art of Compassion presents clear, effective practices for cultivating compassion in daily living. Lorne Ladner, Ph.D. is a clinical psychologist in private practice in Washington DC, and an adjunct faculty member in the counseling program at Argosy University. He began studying Buddhist meditation 15 years ago and is a longtime student of Lama Zopa Rinpoche. Dr. Ladner is currently Center Director of the Guhyasamaja Buddhist Center in Northern Virginia, where he regularly teaches classes, runs workshops, and leads meditation retreats. “A helpful, kindhearted, articulate teaching of the way of compassion. Buddhism and Western psychology meet here wisely and beautifully.” - Jack Kornfield, author of A Path with Heart
