Compassion and Our Capacity to Suffering

Compassion begins with the acceptance of what is most human in ourselves, what is most capable of suffering. In attending to our own capacity to suffer, we can uncover a simple and profound connection between our own vulnerability and the vulnerability in all others. Experiencing this allows us to find an instinctive kindness toward life which is the foundation of all compassion and genuine service. Rachel Naomi Remen

Jung’s approach puts the whole situation entirely outside the realm of pathology and focuses upon the “normal” adult’s potential need to come to terms with the unconscious as a means of developing into what he could be in the full expansion of his powers.
