ABOUT THE COMPASSION CONFERENCE

The Compassion Conference is held annually by Compassionate DFW where local people and professionals gather to share their expertise and views on the chosen topic of the year. This year's topic is “Compassion In Action: Achieving Better Relationships with Self, Others & Your Community”. Our goal is to increase awareness of the critical importance of the value of compassion and embrace intentional compassion and compassionate action as the norm with the Golden Rule as operating principle in all actions and activities. It is also an effort to learn from distinguished speakers who actively promote compassion in their communities and organization. Our world needs more compassion. Spend a day learning practical tools and processes to intentionally practice compassion in the world.


WHO ATTENDS THE CONFERENCE?

Distinguished guests from various backgrounds from all walks of life are invited to this event. At our first conference, we had guests that included members of the government, business persons, media members, university professors, artists, community leaders and members of Compassionate DFW and the Charter for Compassion.


OUR PRESENTERS

Keynote speaker: Robert E. Hall, author of “This Land of Strangers”. Plus experts in the field of compassion in education, the environment, business, healthcare, self-care, mindfulness training, the science of compassion, and many more.
