From: Wednesday, April 15, 2009

Sister Rhea Emmer, is a member of the Congregation of Sisters of St. Agnes, in Fond du Lac, WI and a primary facilitator of the program for executive leaders entitled, "Engaging the Power and Creativity of Compassion." Her presentation, "Power, Compassion and Competency: Are They Compatible?" looks at compassion, a powerful and expansive energy, as having a place not only in the empathetic nature of service, but in the often questionable role found around "hard business decisions" required of leadership and the cultivation of a healthy organizational culture. Her presentation explores an understanding of compassion that encompasses both sides of this energy.

Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius

The exercises are a pathway to recognizing God's activity in our deepest desires and growing in unity with God. Emerging from the experience of St. Ignatius Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus, the Exercises provide a structured opportunity to mature in spiritual freedom and make choices that are responsive to God's call in one's life.
