Readers of Joyce Rupp's bestselling and award-winning book Boundless Compassion and facilitators and participants in compassion retreats have told her repeatedly that they want a guided resource to process and reflect on the content of her book.
The Boundless Compassion Journal is a result of those requests. While the journal can be used alongside the book or as part of the retreat experience, it also can be used on its own to help you better grow in compassion and share the virtue with those around you.
Each day of the six-week personal transformation journey includes a unique prompt to guide and encourage you on your path toward deeper compassion. You will have room to reflect each day with options such as writing a personal response, exploring a scenario, creating a meditative drawing, or exploring the prompt in whatever way feels most meaningful to you. In addition, each day includes a fresh quotation that illuminates a facet of compassion. Finally, each week includes a new prayer and poem by Rupp that relates to the heart of the week's theme.
Whether you come to this resource on its own, after having used the Boundless Compassion book, or have been on a retreat, this journal will help you explore deeper compassion in your life.
