“Compassion is a key ingredient for our well-being – as individuals, as communities, and as global citizens. Learning to cultivate compassion for ourselves and others will remind us of who we are, why we help others, and how to continue our important work in the world. Compassion begins with oneself…” – Julie Hliboki
