Petrina Barson

My involvement with The Contemplary has mainly been to teach Compassion Cultivation Training, and to assist with researching outcomes of that program. I have been a long-term member of a progressive Christian community, and I explore contemplation through this lens – and in more recent years through practices derived from Tibetan Buddhism. I am a doctor (general practitioner), a mother, a poet, and an activist on issues of climate change and refugee rights.
