Compassion for Others, Self & Earth

It's the month of April and that means the countdown is on for our first big wellness event here at The Cedars Ranch, Fierce Self-Compassion: Unplug Your Inner Critic!! On Saturday April 27, we'll be welcoming between 200 - 300 people for our eco-friendly self-compassion event of the year, featuring keynote speaker Dr. Kristin Neff, international pioneering researcher in self-compassion!!

Through spreading the word about our upcoming self-compassion event, we've got to know some amazing people and groups that are aligned with our event and our core values here at The Cedars Ranch. One such group is Compassionate Austin, a growing grassroots movement united to promote, strengthen, and celebrate compassionate action in Austin, Texas and surrounding communities. Compassionate Austin is part of a much bigger global movement under the International Charter for Compassion. There are currently 400+ compassionate communities initiatives globally and the number is growing. Isn't it so heart-warming to know that all these positive and life-giving groups exist around the world?

"Each of us owns a role in making Austin and surrounding communities a more compassionate place to be. We can be a powerhouse of "3D" compassion, caring for Others, Self, and the Earth." ~ Compassionate Austin

We love this "3D" compassion approach of caring for others, self and the earth, and it matches our core values of promoting well-being, building community and environmental sustainability. 

The Cedars Ranch is proud to be new members of the Compassionate Austin Co-op, and help foster and promote more compassionate ways of being in our community and world.

As new members of Compassionate Austin, we had the good fortune and timing to be invited to their brand new signature festival, New Story Festival - celebrating creativity, spirituality and social action - that just took place this past weekend in Austin. 

What an inspiring array of festivities, conversations and people! The Cedars Ranch got to participate in the first-ever "Offers & Needs Market" for the Central Texas area, along with other Compassionate Austin Co-op members (which included non-profits, businesses, schools, faith communities, social action/advocacy groups, artist collectives, and other community groups). An Offers & Needs Market is a 90-minute process where participants come together to identify and exchange their passions, knowledge, skills, resources, and needs. It's an experiment in community asset-mapping and shared-economy principles. 

Here's a picture of the Offers & Needs Market, at last weekend's New Story Festival ...

It was so fun to introduce participants to our new Texas Hill Country eco event venue and wellness retreat, and share about our upcoming self-compassion event this April. We made some great connections and initiated some possible future collaborations too! Thanks to Compassionate Austin and the New Story Festival for this wonderful event.

""3D" compassion, Others, Self and Earth, is essential to our current well-being and to the well-being of future generations. Compassion is about the way we choose to live and survive. It requires us to live in ways that enable all to thrive." ~ Compassionate Austin

Here's to a more compassionate world for us and for future generations.

Until next week,


Operations Manager
