Compassion Week

Compassion fuels our work - "sympathetic consciousness of others' distress together with a desire to alleviate it".  Without it, our efforts are meaningless.
The Charter for Compassion is holding a "Compassion Week" conference in San Fransisco, November 10-16. Click here to learn more or register.
Seven Pieces of Advice from Rumi
In generosity and helping others be like the river.
In compassion and grace be like the sun.
In concealing others' faults be like the night.
In anger and fury be like the dead.
In modesty and humility be like the soil.
In tolerance be like the ocean.
Either you appear as you are or be as you appear.
