I work part-time with the Center for Engaged Compassion teaching and developing curriculum for Triptykos School of Compassion. We have spent 5 years testing and refining a formation program (much like the Ignatian exercises) that actually increases people’s capacity for compassionate living. This formation program is grounded in the spiritual path of Jesus–a 14 week program entitled the Certificate in Engaged Compassion.
We recently received a grant award from the 1440 Foundation (part of the Silicon Valley Community Foundation) to support our efforts in Christian-based compassion formation. The mission of 1440 is to support programs and best practices that cultivate authentic relationship skills in education, wellness, and the workplace. I am grateful for the award.
