In this turbulent time of ours, we need moments of respite to suspend our perception of our reality, to relax our minds, be grateful, and take on a fresh perspective. So, allow me to share a reminder for compassion and love for others as well as for ourselves, through a conversation between Alain de Botton and Ayishat Akanbi, in the video “Alain de Botton and Ayishat Akanbi, Studio B: Unscripted“, below:
On this episode of Studio B Unscripted, philosopher Alain de Botton is in conversation with stylist and social commentator Ayishat Akanbi. A best-selling author, whose books have been described as a ‘philosophy of everyday life’, de Botton founded The School of Life, a social enterprise determined to make learning relevant in today’s culture using philosophy to help others ‘live wisely and well’. Ayishat Akanbi is a fashion stylist and writer. Through her work and online following she confronts complex issues related to surviving in today’s society. She uses her platform to comment on and call out injustice and inequality. This meeting of two minds from different backgrounds explores a range of topics from ancient Greek tragedies and Russian literature, to racism, social media and loneliness. The topics of conversation revolve around the nature of good vs evil, the notion of empathy towards others and how emotional intelligence can be a vehicle towards a better society for all. The views expressed in this program are the guests’ own and do not necessarily reflect Al Jazeera’s editorial stance. Studio B, Unscripted is a free-flow conversation between two guests and a small audience, with no mediation, no MC, no TV presenter – focusing on what brings us all together and how we can tackle and discuss some of the big issues of our time.
Many people have been having a hard time, let’s not make it even harder, especially for those that hitherto we have had a good relationship with. Relationships matter, in the video “The Desperate Need for Compassion and Kindness“, below:
In a livestream on May 29, 2020, the Dalai Lama spoke about the death of George Floyd and the need for compassion, in the video “Dalai Lama on George Floyd and the need for compassion“, below:
Can compassion be learned? The answer is yes! Sometimes, all it takes is truly paying attention to the people around us, in the video “Where Does Compassion Really Come From?“, below:
A heart filled with compassion has no desire to hurt anyone, including itself…. compassion is so tender, aware, considered and is driven by love and kindness…. Take this short journey regularly and watch your heart soften and your mind sharpen. Choose compassion and compassion will choose you!
