David H. Breaux and The Compassion Tour September 2014, Keene Valley
Talks
  • True North Yoga, Schroon Lake Sunday Sept. 14, 6PM
  • Keene Valley Library Monday Sept. 15, 7PM
  • The Yoga Tree, Keene Sunday Sept. 21, 6PM
David H. Breaux has been standing on the same street corner of Davis, CA, for the past five years.  He waits, notebook in hand, to solicit passers-by for their definition of the word compassion.   It is a remarkably simple thing, yet his presence has had a profound effect upon that community.
Davidʼs main goal: inspire people to think about what compassion means to them and act that out in their own lives.
David is launching a year long Compassion Tour in Keene Valley this September.      He will be standing outside of the Keene Valley Library and speaking throughout the area about his own journey with the concept of 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. -Thomas Merton
