A Prayer for Compassion is a feature length documentary that strives to inspire and encourage those already on a religious or spiritual path, to expand their circle of compassion to embrace all life, regardless of species, and make choices in alignment with this value.
The film follows Thomas Jackson on a quest across America, that ultimately takes him to Morocco for the UN Climate Conference and throughout the Indian subcontinent to ask the question, “Can compassion grow to include all beings? and Can people who identify as religious or spiritual come to embrace the call to include all human and nonhuman beings in our circle of respect and caring and love?”
My good friend Victoria Moran is the film’s producer. The world premiere will take place on March 5th and the SVA Theater in New York City. For more information, visit the film’s website.
The next session of Fran Costigan’s Online Essential Vegan Desserts Course at Rouxbe starts March 12, 2019. However, the 90-day course is self-paced, and you can begin up to a week later. Extensions are possible. You can access the course from anywhere, on any device, at any time.
The focus of this course is on learning essential techniques and recipes. You will learn to create professional quality vegan desserts with confidence. Students start by learning about key equipment, ingredient selection, and their function. Learning foundational techniques means learning to create excellent desserts without the use of eggs and dairy or white sugar.
Enrolled students will have access to a closed facebook group, monthly live events and of course, the attention of the entire Rouxbe team, including lead instructor Fran Costigan. This is the only course of its kind in the world.
Rouxbe Cooking School is recognized by the American Culinary Federation Education Foundation. Students who successfully complete the course receive a certificate.
