Step Inside The Circle

Watch the 6-Minute PSA

What we're up to at Compassion Prison Project!

Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It's a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity.
