The Compassion Effect

Where has our compassion gone and how do we get it back? Aja explores compassion, the lack of it and how we can begin to address the lack of it; first with ourselves and then to those around us, especially our children.

Through personal stories of a forced, unwanted abortion, an epiphany while watching a trauma conference and a recent interaction with her son, Aja shows us the damage of the lack of compassion in mothering. She works to decipher where black moms began to "lose" their compassion and then explores ways to begin to be compassionate to ourselves again.
