“Wahhhhhh Thom! I thought introspective awareness was a specialty I had received during 23 years of regular meditation and spiritual studies. However, without this Compassion Course, I would have never discovered alone, the depth of thinking regarding judgments. I have been trying so many things to realize the ignorance of a judgmental attitude, but the seed was still in me… just because I never experienced the Inner Power and the Wisdom that comes from understanding needs.”
— 2012 Compassion Course Participant.
“Working with Thom has changed my life. Really.”
— Nellie B.
“I could take this course for the rest of my life, and I might.”
