About the Author

Joyce Rupp is well known for her work as a writer, international retreat leader, and conference speaker. She is the author of numerous bestselling books, including Praying Our Goodbyes, Open the Door, and Fragments of Your Ancient Name. Rupp is a member of the Servite (Servants of Mary) community and the codirector of the Institute of Compassionate Presence. She lives in West Des Moines, Iowa.


"If it can be said that Praying Your Goodbyes is Joyce Rupp's most memorable book, then I believe that Boundless Compassion will turn out to be her signature generative work. In it she begins by sharing a simple, life-changing event for her. Then, as we read further, we are given the chance to transform as well. We learn how with true compassion realism meets hope; we are invited to sit with other wisdom figures whose words she includes in her text; and we are given the rare opportunity to personally experience a retreat--which this book really is--with one of today's leading spiritual midwives. Boundless Compassion calls us to be compassionate to others and to ourselves in the richest way possible, with Jesus Christ as our ultimate model. Why not respond to this call by slowly enjoying the companionship of this extraordinary book? It may turn out to be the most significant prayer experience you have this year or for years to come." --Robert J. Wicks, Author of Riding the Dragon

"The Gospels are insistent: be compassionate. But they do not tell us how to get there. We need Joyce Rupp for that. She gives us a program and a process on how to develop a compassionate consciousness and find the behaviors that embody it. My guess is that if you engage these reflections and exercises, a new courage will rise in you and the path of compassion will open before you." --John Shea, Author of Seeing Haloes "Beautifully written, Joyce Rupp's moving and powerful work speaks of compassion as 'full immersion in the condition of being human.' Then she shows the way. Her exploration of how the heart might open to ourselves, to one another, to all living beings, and to the earth becomes a master class in love." --Paula D'Arcy, Author of Winter of the Heart "Joyce Rupp shares her experience of the incremental deepening of compassion amid an encouraging and inspiring assembly of scholars and sages of various traditions. As I read, I felt my heart relax into sweetness." --Sylvia Boorstein, Author of It's Easier Than You Think "Joyce Rupp's Boundless Compassion is a subversive book promoting a subversive practice. Compassion shatters the twin idols of nihilism and narcissism in which we take refuge from both the awesome and the awful that is our everyday reality. This book shows you how to live lovingly with both without making a god of either." --Rabbi Rami Shapiro, Author of Perennial Wisdom for the Spiritually Independent and The World Wisdom Bible "Transformative. Joyce Rupp presents us with a practical, no-nonsense invitation and challenge to change ourselves and our world by becoming, and living out, compassion. This book will both inspire us and deepen us into God." --Edwina Gateley, Poet, author, and speaker
