With a focus on the practice of compassion as an indispensable tool for nonviolent conflict resolution in the 21st century, the Charter for Compassion launched a new blog by Aberjhani on February 3, 2017.
"The timing of the launch," said the author, "could not be better as we are seeing escalations of contentious engagements at just about every level in every area of human activity."
The first blog entry, Considering Strategic Advantages of Compassion in 2017, was co-published at Bright Skylark Literary Productions. However, the new Charter blog will feature primarily original posts like the following:
The blog also showcases a series of digital posters illustrating central themes and principle values demonstrated by Charter for Compassion.
The organization, founded by noted author and compassion advocate Karen Armstrong, has long hosted blogs by contributors interested in helping to resolve humanity's most pressing challenges by means that promote sustainable coexistence. These include: "street therapist" David Breaux, author John Smelcer, photographer Steve Kaye, a TED ED Blog of Charter Stories, and a Women and Girls Blog.
Aberjhani has previously contributed articles to the organization's Voices Education Project and is one of its Arts Partners. On top of the current intensified political polarization in America, the need to increase responsiveness globally to such issues as climate change, domestic violence, and ending the education divide prompted the author to accept Charter for Compassion's invitation to publish the new blog.
