The Compassion Tour, a global, yearlong, multi-city tour to raise awareness of compassion, has added a stop in Tulsa to happen February 8-21, 2015. The Tour comes out of the life work of David H. Breaux who currently resides in Davis, CA, where he has spent the last 4 and a half years working to bring attention to compassion within that community. While in Tulsa, David will spend his time inviting people to share their written concept of the word “compassion” in a notebook. David has received over 20,000 entries since beginning this project. A brief video of David’s work can be found at: http://vimeo.com/20228568
The Tulsa Interfaith Alliance has invited The Compassion Tour to stop in Tulsa as part of their campaign to raise awareness of The Charter for Compassion. The TIA has been working with the Tulsa Human Rights Commission on a project to have Tulsa recognized as a Compassionate Community by Charter for Compassion International. The Charter for Compassion calls on individuals, groups, organizations, corporations, governments, and communities to live into the ideal that is at the heart of all religious, ethical and spiritual practices: treating others as you wish to be treated.
David will spend most of his time at Guthrie Green inviting people to sign his notebook. Other stops include the OCCJ Trialogues on February 8 and 15, and OpenTable Community Cafe in Owasso on February 10. He will be at various other venues throughout the greater Tulsa metropolitan area that will be announced via social media. To find out specific events and locations where you can meet David and sign his notebook, please check out the Facebook group “The Compassion Tour Tulsa“, follow CompassionTulsa or CompassionTour on twitter, or David’s instagram account (http://instagram.com/dhbreaux)
