Compassionate Seattle and the Center for Spiritual Living Present:

Call for Compassion


YES! Magazine is a cosponsor of this special event.

Join us on Saturday, March 31st, 6 PM at the Center for Spiritual Living to answer a Call For Compassion. Come be inspired and empowered to turn your vision and ideas into collective action!

Karen Armstrong, 2008 TED Prize Winner and creator of the Charter for Compassion, is returning to Seattle to acknowledge our leadership in launching a world-wide movement of “compassionate cities” while challenging us to raise the bar in promoting a just economy and a peaceful world.  

Be a part of a community-wide response to this year’s TED Prize competition: City 2.0: “Dream Me. Build Me. Make Me Real.”  Your voice matters!

The evening will also inaugurate a new non-profit, Compassionate Seattle, which is honored to give the first annual Compassionate Leadership award to Rick Williams and others for leading the John T Williams Memorial Totem Pole Project.

The Seattle Heart Map, a public information resource published by Compassionate Seattle will also be unveiled. The map visualizes connections between individuals, groups and organizations committed to creating a just and prosperous region; come and add yourself to the map!

 Tickets are $25.00, no one turned away for lack of funds. Find out more on Facebook.
