“Finding your Compassionate Voice" - Emerson Cultural Center, Bozeman MT - Monday, April 15th at 6:30pm, doors open at 6:10
The Compassion Project is pleased to present, “Finding Your Compassionate Voice,” on April 15 at the Emerson Center for the Arts & Culture. Featuring personal stories about compassion, a panel discussion, and musical performances by Permafunk and the Montana Women's Chrous, this event serves to spark deeper conversations around compassion - what it means, how to recognize it, the realities of it as a practice, and why it is important. Included on the panel is writer, pastor, activist, and author of Hope and Other Superpowers, John Pavlovitz.
Questions to be explored include: what are compassion’s limitations? When we talk about compassion, who is it for and who is expected to give it? Is it possible to be compassionate to everyone?
'Finding Your Compassionate Voice' is free and open to the public. The Emerson Grill will host a cash-bar cocktail hour beginning at 5:30 pm in the Emerson Ballroom. Doors to the Emerson’s Crawford Theatre will open at 6:10 pm and the event will kick off at 6:30 pm. The Compassion Project is a non-partisan, non-religious organization and project currently managed by MSU’s College of Education, Health & Human Development.
