Non-Feeling Word Game - A resource for The Compassion Course

Print out or write the three columns of words below onto a piece of paper.

Next, draw a line from the "non-feeling" words in the center column and match them to the feelings (left column) and needs (right column) that you think may be inside them. 

The process of "unpacking" these words into feelings and needs usually results in a deeper level of understanding and connection...and more compassion.

Hi Melissa,

Thank you for posting the links and resources.  I clicked through most of them and felt joy reading/experiencing the articles--and I'm comforted knowing that I know how to get back to them: through your posts!

Thanks for the feedback and encouragement, Andy!  I'm happy to hear that my posts are contributing.  Sometimes I wonder if anyone sees them or cares.
