Registration/ Information

Compassion is a necessity, not a luxury. Without it, humanity cannot survive.” (Dalai ama)

Compassion can change a heart, change a life, change a world. You are invited to explore the depth of the many-layered components of compassion, the central quality of the life and teachings of Jesus. The retreat is an opportunity to expand and deepen your understanding of compassion from both a personal and professional perspective. You will glean insights for many dimensions including theology, spirituality, science, sociology and psychology. This retreat is offered as a catalyst for a renewed commitment to be a compassionate
presence to yourself and to others who are in the midst of pain and struggle.

(Participants in this retreat are eligible to attend the Boundless Compassion Facilitators Training with Joyce on June 25.)
