Compassionate Living Workshops

IIHE's Sowing Seeds workshops help people who are interested in becoming effective humane educators primarily within schools. Our Compassionate Living workshops are designed for activists, advocates, and other individuals who want to learn how to better live and model a compassionate life.

The Compassionate Living workshop helps you to examine your lifestyle choices, learn about sustainable and humane living, and reach out to others through effective, non-judgmental, positive communication and action. This workshop will help you live your life consciously, courageously, and with integrity while also teaching you how best to be a role model and leader.
