I agree that the detachment will give more space for compassion. I haven't done a lot of mindfulness training, but my husband, who has chronic depression, has, and it was hugely helpful for me to learn to observe and separate from my emotions without..I want to say without judging them, but that's not wholly accurate. Without assuming their permanence, maybe? Being able to watch my emotions passing in the way I watch my preschooler's, knowing that they'll pass? I find it helps to view my own emotions with some of the amused tolerance and detachment that I use for my children, so as not to fall into the problem of becoming angry at myself for feelings that I think are inappropriate.
