Living Compass

The Living Compass program is based on the belief that each of us could know what we need to do to become more whole if we would only take time to listen to God’s quiet whisper of a voice within us. It is also based on the belief that we cannot be whole by ourselves: this journey towards wellness will require the support and care of others as well.
