Dear Charter family,  

It's my pleasure to announce that we are ready to celebrate Golden Rule Day 2022 on April 5. We have a pre-recorded celebration to be showcased via Zoom at 12AM, 8AM, and 12PM PDT, in between the broadcasts we offer live panels and conversations hosted on our social media channels with focuses on Youth, Environment, LGBTQ+, Anti-Racism and the arts, and…


We have a dear volunteer, Nancy Rushlow Bray, who is taking an extended break from the many tasks that she does to support the work of the Charter for Compassion. Nancy has been an integral part of the volunteer CEI Team (Charter Education Institute) and our Charter family for several years now. We would need a separate newsletter to list all the tasks that Nancy has performed for CEI. As Charter newsletter readers you've been a direct recipient of her work for years, as she is the main person who compiles, lays out and schedules its distribution to our 80,000+ recipients.

Thanks so very much, Nancy, for the countless ways you make things happen at the Charter. Nancy, we will miss seeing your beautiful face and sweet smile in our staff meetings. Anyone who knows you will not be surprised that the name Nancy in Hebrew also means Grace. Spot on for you Nancy, as you are filled with grace, kindness, love, and compassion!

Many thanks, Nancy! We hope you have a wonderful and restful hiatus and we look forward to seeing you in the near future.

Join the team at the Charter for Compassion

This rewarding and demanding Program Coordinator position is a dynamic opportunity for someone who enjoys working remotely as well as being an integral part of a small team.

Given its international character, the Charter is looking for someone who speaks another language in addition to English, possibly Spanish, Portuguese, French or Arabic, and for whom Zoom, ACY Mailing, CiviCRM, Ruzuku, Sutra, DropBox, Microsoft Office, Google Suite hold no surprises. Preference is given to someone who is familiar with the Charter and its programs, is very organized, and has webpage experience (We use SP Pagebuilder/Joomla) and is a quick learner. Experience or aptitude for coding, graphic design and video editing would be a plus. 

We look forward to receiving your resume and a cover letter, sharing your interest in the position and reflecting on some compassionate actions, or lack of actions, in your community. We are accepting applications until April 4 and plan to have interviews with potential candidates the week of April 18.  The anticipated starting date will be May 9. While the salary range for this position intends to meet the median salary within an individual's country, we may not always be able to achieve that level. Please send cover letter and resume to


poetry for inspiration and wellbeing 2022

 (Back By Popular Demand!)

There‚Äôs truth to the saying, ‚ÄúThere‚Äôs a poet in all of us.‚ÄĚ Poetry has always had an important place in society. It still does today. Consider, for instance, Amanda Gorman, the young, African American poet who recited her poem from the United States Capitol during the Inauguration of President Joseph Biden. Shortly after that auspicious day, while the world watched, she read another poem during the Super Bowl, one of the most watched events in television history. Clearly, poetry has a place in our society. But how do you bring out the poet inside you?

A Guide to Human Flourishing

Our capacity to collaborate and innovate together has been undermined by the increase in incivility, toxic behavior and divisiveness in our homes, schools, workplaces, and the public square. This erodes our sense of belonging, community, and well-being. 

We need each other to address the complex challenges facing our communities and our cities ‚Äď from aging infrastructure to climate change, homelessness, mental health and addiction issues among many others.

Course starts April 25, Cost: $45

Next month's Global Read "MOTHER" is a large-format nature photography book, showcasing Marsel van Oosten's personal favorites and his most popular and award-winning images from the past 15 years, taken on five continents: Africa, North America, Antarctica, Asia, and Europe. MOTHER is Marsel's personal visual ode to Mother Earth and a celebration of her incredible biodiversity.

Successful conservation starts with awareness, and Marsel hopes that the images in this book will reconnect people to nature, make them realize that Mother Earth desperately needs our protection, and inspire them to take action.

Parenthood gives a whole new meaning to the term stress test. Too often, we find ourselves treadmilling through our days set on ‚Äúautomatic,‚ÄĚ anxiously trying to keep pace with far too many to-dos. It can seem difficult, if not impossible, to pause and catch a breath. How can we shift from automaton mode to being more present in our lives and for the people we love?

In this illuminating 
ParentMap Live¬†talk, renowned psychiatrist, Mindsight Institute cofounder and author¬†Dan Siegel, M.D., will break down techniques to help parents become more mindful in their daily routines. Drawing from the groundbreaking Wheel of Awareness practice outlined in his bestselling books ‚ÄúAware‚ÄĚ and ‚ÄúBecoming Aware,‚ÄĚ Dr. Siegel will share everyday exercises to regain inner balance and peace, while reducing fear, anxiety, and stress.
