Circles of Compassion is rich in innovative thought, connection and heart. The perfectly orchestrated collaboration of inspired minds makes this collection of writings essential reading for anyone wanting to develop or deepen their compassion for all beings. This book is a great gift to humanity and has the potential to unite us all. It can also bring peace and freedom to animals and healing to the earth, creating a bright, sustainable future.

I loved the inclusive tone of the book and the hope I felt while reading it. I will share this book far and wide as I regard it as a brilliant educational tool that we are very fortunate to have access to. As more and more people are now re-awakening their innate compassion, Circles of Compassion has arrived at the perfect moment in time. Thank you Vegan Publishers, the editor Will Tuttle and the contributors to Circles of Compassion for crafting such a remarkable, peace-bringing, energy-shifting publication.
