There is a basic life current or impulse resonating in and through us as a yearning of the heart, this current and yearning manifests as human needs.




A Letter from The Caring Collective
January 2019

Dear Friends,

Our tremendous gratitude goes out to the community of friends who have offered their love and support so generously as our beloved teacher Robert Gonzales was undergoing medical treatment and facing a deeply spiritual healing journey.
It was with all your help and support, financially as well as through your words, loving thoughts and prayers, your own healing stories that we - as a community - were able to offer a holding space for Robert, help sustain the Center for Living Compassion, and assure financial stability for its staff in times where Robert could not provide the income for this purpose himself.
We are happy to announce that our fundraising campaign reached its goal with a total of $54,828 through the GoFundMe platform, and an additional amount of $18,295 sent directly to the Center for Living Compassion.
On behalf of the Caring Collective and the staff of the Center for Living Compassion we want to express our deepest gratitude for this community - our community - to spread its wings of love to carry Robert, Ruth, and the Center through this challenging, yet deeply moving time.
The GoFundMe website will go offline by the end of this month and this phase of our collective is drawing to a close. Yet if you feel moved to offer support to Robert and the Center for Living Compassion from this stage onward, as his healing journey continues, please click the donate button to the left on this page or below the video.
We feel delighted to share with you Robert's words of gratitude and an update on his health in this video.
For anyone who would love to be with Robert again, to celebrate his health and recovery, his renewed vitality and connect with the deep love and compassion he touched on his journey, please visit this page of upcoming possibilities to learn with Robert in 2019.
With a deep bow of gratitude,

The Caring Collective
