Welcome to our new bookshop. You will find here all our salon authors' books, our latest recommendations, author interviews and thoughts from other readers. The Bookshop is run exclusively at the salon through us and our friends powered by Bookshop.
The Compassion Salon Book shop will also recommended books related to compassion and well being regularly throughout the year. Each of our lists is compiled after a rigorous selection process which provides you with a final selection of books that we know you will love as much as we do. We will also recommend books from authors we would love to host a salon. Fingers crossed !
Salon associates will provide reviews and a summary of every book on the list including those of our salon authors . Sometimes we will even be lucky enough to interview authors and the discussion will be provided here and on our website.
The purpose of The Compassion Salon is to create a community around new and established authors and poets whose work relates to compassion and wellbeing. The intention is that it will be a place for people to connect, inspire and support using books and prose as a means through which to consider the various aspects of human existence in an increasingly fragmented and challenging global community.
The salon is a compassionate initiative to facilitate and strengthen community and belonging. The salon celebrates, inspires and cultivates creativity, innovation, self-compassion and individual and societal wellness.
Each Salon follows a similar format with an author and/or poet and a host who joins the author in an intimate conversation around their work and the meaning of compassion to them. A poem of the authors choice is read out at the salon by a chosen speaker. This conversation is then opened out to the audience.
