Book on compassion for free or small donation

Brigitte van Baren from Inner Sense, one of Earth Charter International’s most recent new Affiliates, has agreed to offer her book for free download or for a small donation to Earth Charter International. The book is titled “Live the Power of Compassion: Eight Spiritual Principles for Compassionate Earth Behaviour”.

“Created as a prelude to the RIO+20 Conference on Sustainable Development to be held in June 2012, this publication contains ideas on how anyone can develop an Earth-friendly attitude to life. Throughout the world, we are struggling with the impact of the economic crisis and global warming, and, more than ever, we need to ask ourselves some serious questions about the way we are leading our society. In a world where people are becoming increasingly independent, while at the same time coping with the irrational aspects of life, values like power and logic no longer suffice. Different qualities, especially ‘soft’ ones such as self-awareness, empathy and compassion, can serve us better in dealing with unexpected and overwhelming change.”

If you would like to download a pdf copy of this book, please see below, and if you would like to make a small donation to Earth Charter International, please consider a donation as small as $5 and as large as you would like.

Earth Charter International and the Initiative are grateful for Brigitte’s donation and hopes you will also derive knowledge, satisfaction, and more capacity for compassion from the book.
