Turning Compassion into Action by Olivia McIvor

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 book is a call to action to bring more compassion to the forefront of our lives, our work, and our world. We are all “ordinary people” -brave men and women doing heroic acts of kindness and compassion, every day in the simplest of ways.
