We are very excited to announce our first study group, which will focus on Awakening Compassion at Work. Monica Worline and Jane Dutton have done groundbreaking research into this topic, and their book is a huge resource.

Our first meeting will be Friday September 11th, @ 12:00 PST. For those of you that register after that date, no problem, you can join us as we go through the material.
