To be compassionate is to bleed, to feel deeply for the damage around you and to be moved to respond. This is a beautiful and invaluable instinct, but it is costly, too. There is a toll the trauma of the world takes on us when we seek to step into that dangerous space and to work for healing and justice. In days when so much need is at our doorsteps and on our news feeds, how do we attend to it all without becoming overwhelmed and consumed by it? How do we avoid becoming martyrs of our own hearts?

Join this workshop-style authentic conversation on how to be safely burdened with the pain of this world, and what to do when you've exhausted your resources.
