Compassion Acts

With Sr. Kim Marie Jordan, OSB

August 12 - 14, 2022

Monastery of St. Gertrude Vision

Prayer awakens. Justice impels. Compassion acts.

Thy Kingdom Come

Spirit Center and the Monastery of St. Gertrude present four retreats based on the monastery’s vision statement. Each retreat explores one aspect of the vision. The retreats stand alone; participation in one does not require participation in the others.

Compassion Acts is an experiential retreat encompassing numerous topics including: empathy, compassion, self-compassion, perfectionism, forgiveness, suffering, disability, The Two Wolves at the Door, One Good Deed, and works of compassion.

Over the course of the weekend, Sr. Kim will present each topic through personal stories and select videos. For each topic, retreatants will have the opportunity to further explore the movements of compassion in their own lives and in the lives of others through small group discussions.
