Quickening of Compassion® Cards

Change the World With Just One Card

These days, our interactions are often divisive—without any sincere attempts at understanding one another. The result: people act without kindness, empathy, or respect for others. Quickening of Compassion Cards are a tool to change that. The cards harness the power of compassion through photographs, meditations, and action steps, all designed to help you create a more compassionate world.

Tool for Action

Quickening of Compassion Cards will:

  • Inspire deeper thinking about our history and ourselves.
  • Promote productive conversations on difficult issues – immigration, discrimination, and poverty.
  • Generate new ideas about social justice.
  • Provide specific activities you can use to practice compassion.

What is on the Cards

There are 26 two-sided cards that will be delivered to you in pdf format. Copies of the cards are also included in the accompanying Study Guide (also delivered in pdf format).

The front of the cards features a stirring image and a caption describing the picture. The back of the cards offer a thought-provoking meditation and a suggested action step. (Click here for more detailed view.)
