Discover the power of the human heart for compassion. Empowered by the practice of Loving Kindness Meditation allow yourself to engage in a journey with compassion. Sense it flowing from your experience of self-compassion and moving to embracing all beings and the environment with an all-inclusive loving kindness – omitting none, as we offer healing to the Global Community.
Finally, we will take time together to weave compassionate actions. Surprise yourself with your capacity for love and compassion.
Reflections about The Charter for Compassion International will aid us as we journey with compassion.
Pope Francis from his recent address to Congress
Let us remember the Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you(Mt 7:12). This Rule points us in a clear direction.Let us treat others with the same passion and compassion with which we want to be treated.Let us seek for others the same possibilities which we seek for ourselves.Let us help others to grow, as we would like to be helped ourselves.In a word, if we want security, let us give security;if we want life, let us give life;if we want opportunities, let us provide opportunities.
