“Compassion is a necessity, not a luxury. Without it, humanity cannot survive.” (Dalai Lama) Compassion can change a heart, change a life, change a world. This retreat, based upon the work of Sr. Joyce Rupp, OSM, is open to people of all faiths and spiritualties. You are invited to explore the depth of the many layered components of compassion, the central quality of the life and teachings of Jesus. You are invited 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. You will experience this opportunity 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.
