THE COMPASSIONATE INTENTION OF ILLNESS
Dr. Tony Humphreys
The Compassionate Intention of Illness is the title of Dr. Tony Humphreys’ most recent
publication which he plans to launch at the Centre here on Saturday 21 November
The event will combine a seminar style presentation of the book’s central theme and an
interactive launch dimension which will provide opportunities of purchase and signing
of the book while light refreshments are served in the Centre’s dining room.
The ethos of the day will be conducive to participants gaining meaningful insight into
the central theme of the book, while engaging interactively with the author whose
special gift is to honour the uniqueness of each person and respect the manner in which
they wish to explore the material he presents.
The author’s other outstanding gift is the gentle grace with which he carries and shares
a lifetime of scholarship, professional practice and deep wisdom. Being part of one of
his seminars evokes Oliver Goldsmith’s time-honoured lines:
“the more he spoke, the more the wonder grew
that one small head (big heart) could carry all he knew”.
Come, enjoy the day, deepen your personal journey into the heart of compassion and
discover its kinship with illness in our lives.
Date: Saturday 21 November, 2009
