“Books encourage ‘deep reading’ in which the reader draws connections
to other parts of the material, finds applications to the outside world,
and asks questions about the content presented... all while promoting
empathy, social perception, and emotional intelligence, which are
cognitive processes that lead to better relationships and even a longer
life.” —Sarah Ditim, PhD
Studies show that mindfulness can strengthen our compassion and
other studies support the notion that reading poetry and literature
increase our compassion muscles. Ginny Agnew is-in her words-prepared to lead a Pilates of Compassion through literature training
session. Please join her.
