Compassion & Loss: A Boundless Compassion Retreat

Add To Calendar

In this day-long retreat, we will work on creating supportive practices for times of loss. Using Joyce Rupp’s Boundless Compassion book as the basis for our retreat, we will explore the challenges of grief and loss and develop tools and a better understanding of how to incorporate compassion and presence into a healing process.
