Event description
A documentary meant to inspire & encourage those already on a spiritual or religious path to widen their circle of compassion.

About this Event

The film follows Thomas Jackson on a quest across America that ultimately takes him to Morocco for the UN Climate Conference and throughout the Indian subcontinent to ask the question, “Can compassion grow to include all beings? and Can people who identify as religious or spiritual come to embrace the call to include all human and nonhuman beings in our circle of respect and caring and love?”
