Dominican Center is a Heart Center

At Dominican Center, people come to explore the interconnectedness of Creation and humanity and the boundlessness of God’s love. Allow yourself to be transformed wholly and holy. Come inside.


Thomas Merton wrote about interdependence and compassion: "The whole idea of compassion is based on a keen awareness of the interdependence of all these living beings, which are all part of one another, and all involved in one another.”

In our wisest moments, we realize that staying in that compassionate space allows our commitment to take shape. Yes, there may be moments of overwhelm. But walking with others, faithfully, can be a balm in times of overwhelm or despair.

Beginning in February, in our Compassionate Kinship Circle series, we will explore the concept of compassion as a response to the suffering we experience in ourselves and in our world and how we can cultivate compassion in our living. Join new companions, encourage and inspire one another.  Read more about cultivating compassion.
