A Circle of Compassion is based on the book 12 Steps to a Compassionate Life by Karen Armstrong. This group is an interfaith group that meets weekly to discuss a chapter of this book. The group starts with meditation, then a check-in, followed by a discussion of a chapter from the book. The times listed above are what worked in the spring semester this past year and are subject to change. All Ithaca College students, faculty and staff are welcome to participate in these discussions.
