Turning Compassion Into Action: a movement toward taking responsibility

ISBN: 978-0-9881081-0-3        Price: $18.95 CND

“Compassion is not a commodity; you can’t trade it on the stock market, it does not come with an expiration date, nor is it of limited supply, therefore, you cannot lose it when you use it.”

- Olivia McIvor

Compassion is the bedrock of a healthy society. McIvor’s Turning Compassion into Action urges each of us to craft engaged and meaningful lives. She believes we must each embrace the innate wellspring of compassion within us and impact our world, one action at a time. To actualize compassion we need to transform our pessimism into optimism; connect to the deeper purpose of our work; expand our communities to create more belonging; and be  intentionally present with ourselves and others.

This is Ms. McIvor’s third book.
