Are you fatigued by the polarization in the world? Are you ready to be Compassion in a suffering world? This program is for your IF you want to use the power of your intent & action to create a daring paradigm of engaged compassion.
Moving through polarization and into authentic compassionate connection doesn’t begin “out there” with others. It begins internally with a change in our self — by consciously connecting our intent to compassionate action.

Using the metaphor of the bridge, use the power of your intent & action connection to be compassionate to yourself and the world. Create your lived experience of compassion.
