Event description

Description

Compassion is a feeling of deep sympathy and sorrow for another who is stricken by misfortune, accompanied by a strong desire to alleviate the suffering.

A Prayer For Compassion strives to inspire and encourage those already on a religious or spiritual path, to expand their circle of compassion to embrace all life, regardless of species, and make choices in alignment with this value.

The film follows Thomas Jackson on a quest across America, to Morocco for the UN Climate Conference and throughout the Indian subcontinent to ask the questions:
“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?”

Drawing on traditions including Christianity (evangelical, Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Friends/Quakers, Seventh Day Adventism, Unity, and more); Judaism; Islam; Hinduism; Buddhism; Jainism; the Native American tradition; Unitarian Universalism; Zoroastrianism; and the “spiritual but not religious” point of view, A Prayer For Compassion calls on people of faith and spiritual seekers of every stripe to come together to bring about a world in which compassion to others extends to animals. A world where “The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling together; and a little child will lead them…They will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain, for the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.” (Isaiah 11:6 and 11:9)

LIVE MUSIC with DYLAN GUY PINKERTON


Dylan Guy Pinkerton is an Australian singer-songwriter having recently moved to Melbourne after finishing his studies at Southern Cross University. Dylan's sound can best be described as the love child of John Mayer and Allen Stone, which embodies lush harmony, relatable lyrics and catchy hooks all rolled up into a contemporary Pop, Folk fondue.

Since taking up the guitar at age 15 Dylan has performed at nationally acclaimed festivals such as Blues Festival (2012, 2013), Splendour (2016) and performed around the country at venues like the Sydney Entertainment Centre. Currently Dylan is working on an EP set for a single release soon!
