Some Experiences of Past Participants
“ I have felt a strong spiritual shift in my thinking and reacting, which has brought me a lot of peace and clarity.”
“The program has awakened within me a quest for new ways to show compassion, to be with those who are broken and in need, and to gently tend my own soul.”
“For me this program has opened more doors to learn, scrutinize and deepen my awareness of how badly we need compassion in our world.”
“This program makes one comfortable with the uncomfortable, opening one’s eyes, heart, and mind toward others.”
