Challenge: Compassion Games

This is your challenge, should you choose to accept it: to upset the status quo by compassionate action for each other as brother and sister, and for our planet. Compassionate action would sweep away and overturn all the roots and foundations of the status quo, set free the oppressed, heal the sick and wounded, quench the thirsty, feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, and set everyone dancing for joy. Love is in many places now seen as dangerous; love has been suppressed; love has been exiled from thought, word and deed. Open your heart to let compassion pour out onto the world, and your heart will overflow. It will not empty, it will expand exponentially.

Compassion Games: Survival of the Kindest offers fun and creative ways to ignite and catalyze compassionate action in communities around the world. The Games amplify what is already working and inspires new ways to care for ourselves, each other, and the Earth. In the Compassion Games, competition becomes coopetition as we challenge one another to strive together to make our planet a kinder, safer, and better place to live!

The Compassion Games organizes an annual, global compassion coopetition that brings together players and teams who challenge each other to inspire compassionate action. The results are charted on a global map

Here are some ideas for ways to play and pages of the early entrants in the Compassion Games, Seattle and Louisville.
