Sunday, June 26 thru Thursday, June 30
Shalom Spirituality Center, Dubuque, Iowa
Facilitators: Mary Jo Wulf and Jeannine Kosman

Compassion can change a heart, change a life, change a world. Jeannine Kosman and Mary Jo Wulf (Franciscan Associates and Boundless Compassion facilitators trained by Joyce Rupp) explore the depths of this vital quality, central to the life and teachings of Jesus, from many dimensions, including science, theology, spirituality, sociology, and psychology. They invite participants to ponder personal, professional, religious, and cultural experiences of compassion,re-energize and ability to embrace and express loving-kindness, and move forward with a renewed commitment to being a compassionate presence for oneself and those amid pain and struggle. This week offers a concentrated format in which the leaders and the participants explore both the theoretical and experiential dynamics of compassion. The content of the four days includes an in-depth view of compassion as a way of life, self-compassion and self-care, loss and suffering, compassionate presence, marginalization, and compassion for creation. Franciscan Spirituality is woven throughout the retreat. Each day includes formal presentations, videos and other media, quiet reflection, and group dialogue. This program is open to persons of any religious or nonreligious affiliation and personal belief system. We will offer CEUs for this four-day retreat to those interested. For those who meet the eligibility requirements, the optional facilitator training day includes an in-depth study of the contents and process, information on various resources, and creative approaches for presentations, see below for more details.
