Becoming a Compassionate Prayerful Presence invites participants to enter into a process facilitating more compassionate living – personal and professional. The retreat is designed for professional caregivers, doctors, nurses, other health professionals, social workers and chaplains, or simply for anyone who wants to deepen their spiritual growth to re-enter the world with a more compassionate way of being. The retreat will include presentations, small group discussions, music with rituals, prayer, silence and reflection. The overall retreat experience is meant to create an atmosphere in which relationships can develop and thrive so
that “circles of compassion” can emerge in various locales and communities.
“Becoming a compassionate, prayerful presence is a transformational journey,” explains Sister Bauer. “This retreat is an invitation to enter into a process for compassionate living, which is challenging, inspiring and encouraging for both one’s personal and professional life.”
