School of Compassion

This is the final week to sign up for our twelve-week compassion formation training entitled “The Way of Radical Compassion.” The program begins with a 3-day retreat in San Francisco January 23-26, 2014. Participants will be led through a set of spiritual exercises that encourage and cultivate contemplative awareness and self-compassion. Students will then spend 12 weeks with online teachings, practices, and personal guidance from a trained spiritual director. Finally, we’ll gather at the end of April for a closing retreat on “Loving Our Enemies.” If you are ready to grow in your understanding and practice of compassion, sign up for our compassion training program here.
