Five Keys (wk5) – Four Modes of Spontaneous Compassion

Published by Greg Heffron on


Spontaneous Compassion:

1. pacifying – creating welcoming space; connected to the Key of Mindful Presence.

2. enriching – nurturing; creating a inclusive atmosphere where everyone/everything is invited in; finding “the (hidden) gold” when someone is feeling fearful (Yellow Light); connected to the Key of Encouragement.

3. magnetizing – bringing awareness to patterns and rousing greater mindfulness; an articulate call to action that overcomes sluggishness and neglect; connected to the Key of Unconditional Friendliness and the power of discernment.

4. cutting through – taking action to avert harm; connected to the Key of Playfulness.
