Hear From Our Instructors

"Compassion reveals to us that helping others versus helping ourselves need not be a tradeoff – through compassion, we can do both.”

"When we're looking at our anti-racism and social justice work and grounding it in a sense of spirituality, it allows for self-care, it allows for care of one another as a community, and a sense of oneness."

"One of the gifts of having a free democracy and free journalism is the ability to tell stories that change the way we think of the world."
