Compassion in Action Conference

September 14 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm

The demands on our attention in today’s world stretch our ability to express true compassion. Competition for our mind and heart space can distract us from realizing our best intentions.   Research shows that compassion can be learned and that practicing it benefits our health.  We all can learn better ways to benefit from self- compassion and act with intentional compassion. 
Attend the September 14th  Compassion in Action:  APPlications in Today’s Times, Download, Install and Run the Right Apps in Your Life.” Conference.  Like the “APPs” we install to effectively manage our lives, the conference supplies “Apps” to help us to effectively practice compassion. 
Spend the day and come away with new ways to take up compassion: 
  • Be inspired, take away valuable tools, benefit from real examples, and connect with difference- makers
  • Learn ways to renew yourself from compassion fatigue and the stresses of caring and contributing
  • Gain deeper understanding of the meaning of compassion and its importance in our world
  • Hear Keynote Speaker Marilyn Turkovich, Executive Director of the Charter for Compassion
About the Day
Attend four different highly interactive workshops of your choice; hear from the Executive Director and from a panel of local community leaders, and enjoy a social event at the end of the day.
