Join us for the first ever Philadelphia Compassion Day Camp!***

We are changing the plan! Compassion Day Camp is now an afternoon/evening gathering. We will begin at 4, end at 8pm. Plan on doing a bit of connecting through a few process oriented activities and generally just enjoying the company of like-minded and open hearted folk. Hopefully we can end the evening by the fire (weather permitting).

***I am leaving this text below only for understanding the intention and energy of our gathering.

In the tradition of our 4 day summer event in Black Mountain, we are bringing the spirit and heart of the Camp here to Philly!

Compassion Camp is inspired by the life and work of Dr. Marshall Rosenberg, the creator of Nonviolent Communication (NVC). We believe that the theory and practice of NVC is a life-changing tool for cultivating compassion in our hearts, communities, and the world. In addition to NVC, other topics may include: social justice, ecology, circling, restorative circles, healthy relationships, feminism, families and children, eco-sexuality, community, economics, and authentic movement.

Compassion Day Camp will also feature relational activities centered around singing, dancing, storytelling, and silence, which cultural anthropologist Angeles Arrien has identified as the four most common ways that humans create wellness, community, and connection. 

Compassion Day Camp participants will likely experience:
~Increased connection to self, others, and nature
~A deeper commitment to being of service
~A broader understanding of the ways you can live compassion
~More skill in creating supportive community in your life
~More practical tools and resources to inspire yourself and others
