Teaching the Art of Compassion since 1984.

Connecting Elders & Youth in a Soulful Way.

Enabling Medical Students, Caregivers and First Responders to live a life of balance and joy – even in insanely stressful environments.

STUDENTS who will become our future doctors, nurses and allied health professionals build emotional maturity, communication skill, and capacity for compassion—before their professional training begins.

They learn by volunteering for one year in nursing homes through our award-winning, service-learning internship in relationship-centered care.

PROFESSIONALS on the front lines of health care improve their ability to communicate with patients and each other, to build the healing partnerships that restore well-being.

They also gain tools to guard against burnout, build resilience, and sustain their compassion.

COMMUNITIES and team leaders gain ready-made, road-tested multidisciplinary training materials that inspire, inform and make communicating compassion a visible, practical, and teachable skill accessible to everyone.

ELDERS who are chronically ill and facing the end of life alone are befriended by our student volunteers who have developed the ability to listen from the heart—at a standard that reduces distress and restores well-being.
