Based on Gail Straub’s critically acclaimed book The Rhythm of Compassion: Caring for Self, Connecting with Society, these short meditations are designed to help you learn to find and follow your own unique rhythm of compassion. Circle of Compassion uses the powerful metaphor of the rhythmic nature of breathing to show you how to help yourself while helping others. The series of meditations is an ongoing exercise for getting to the root of healing, developing compassion, and putting compassion into action—to heal ourselves, others, and the world around us.

“This is a book of great authenticity, practicality, and heart.” — Sharon Salzberg, author of Loving Kindness: The Revolutionary Art of Happiness

“It is a wonderful achievement of the book to disclose so many of the secret bridges between the inner hemisphere of the soul and the out world of action. The balance Straub recommends will be crucial in our new millennium.” —John O’Donohue, author of Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom
