International Center for a Culture of Compassion (I.C.C.C.)

Located in Fallsburg, New York, the I.C.C.C. explores and shares Heart's Home's spirit of compassion through retreats, seminars and conferences designed for families, business leaders, policy makers, artists, scientists, and persons from all backgrounds.

Our vision is to build a culture of compassion through our outreach to those who form culture.

Our goal is to create a beautiful space where we will be able to accommodate our educational programs and cultural events; a place of inspiration for all who thirst for an answer to suffering.

Projected Programs

The I.C.C.C. will host:

  • Retreats, seminars and conferences offering an introduction to compassion as well as developments on how to infuse its spirit into every sector of human life.
  • Academic research center : the I.C.C.C. will accommodate in-house scholars in the disciplines of philosophy, theology, science, and economics as well as host invited scholars for specific academic projects and students working on their thesis. The investigations of our scholars will attempt to clarify the impact of compassion on their specific field of research.
  • Community Outreach : the I.C.C.C. will reach out to business leaders, policy makers, artists, religious and community leadership groups through lectures and publications.
  • Training sessions for young people from North America who would like to become Heart's Home missionaries in one of our 35 centers throughout the world; as well as continued formation in theology, philosophy and spirituality to the 100 "permanent members" of Heart's Home (seminarians, priests, religious sisters and lay consecrated).
  • The I.C.C.C. will also be a retreat center where groups and individuals can come to pray and rest.
