So often we talk about compassion as the way we act. I want to challenge that and ask you to think about compassion as the way we show up. Our schedules are busy, without a doubt. And there is always room to choose. Compassionate Atlanta is proud to offer everyone opportunities to show up. And in the next 2 months the offerings are plentiful.
