The International Center for a Culture of Compassion

The ICCC was founded in 2007 to sup­port Heart’s Home world­wide effort to pro­mote and infuse a “cul­ture of com­pas­sion” into society at large.

The International Center for a Culture of Compassion is:

  • a RETREAT open to anyone in search of silence and solitude

Located in the Catskills (2 hours North of New York City), the International Center for a Culture of Compassion offers an envi­ron­ment con­ducive to rest, reflec­tion, healing, and con­tem­pla­tion.

The grounds, just enough removed from New York City and its daily din, encom­pass 125 acres of rolling hills, maple woods, a secluded pond, and breath­taking land­scapes.

Throughout the year, the Center invites people of all reli­gious back­grounds to ben­efit from the calm and beauty of the place, and from the hos­pi­tality of its warm and prayerful com­mu­nity.

  • a CULTURAL CENTER to inspire and nurture

Guided by Heart’s Home mem­bers and its board of dis­tin­guished advi­sors, the International Center for a Culture of Compassion wel­comes artists and people of all walks-of-life. On site as well as in New York City, the Center strives to nur­ture and inspire cre­ativity through:

- Seminars
- Spiritual Retreats
- Art Exhibitions
- Individualized Residencies

  • the HOME BASE of an international movement of compassion

The ICCC serves as the US for­ma­tion center of Heart’s Home’s world­wide net­work of vol­un­teers. Through training ses­sions and retreats, the Center offers ini­tial and ongoing for­ma­tion to mis­sion­aries active in 23 coun­tries. Permanent mem­bers also stay at the Center on sab­bat­i­cals, to restore phys­ical and spir­i­tual strength for the mis­sion.
