Topic The compassionate observer is a place within all of us that is able to view the world, others and our selves with compassion. Through simple imaginative and movement experiences we will discover that heart space that allows the compassion of God to flow through us. We will apply our personal experience to the areas of formation, supervision, and discernment.
