Natural Living Retreats in Costa Rica allow adults to experience the rain forest first hand while learning to improve their lifestyle.

[Rae Sikora] Zoe Weil and Rae Sikora are the co-founders of The Center For Compassionate Living (CCL). CCL is dedicated to creating lasting social change for Animals, the Earth, and All people through compassionate lifestyle choices. Our workshops focus on everything from simplifying our lives to conflict resolution to humane education. We work with activists, universities, businesses, public and private schools, and individuals of all ages. Many of our workshops take place in beautiful coastal Maine, but arrangements can be made to hold a workshop in your region.

In the spring of 1997 we will launch the first Humane Education Certification Program (HECP) in the U.S. In our efforts to create a compassionate world, we have seen that the biggest strides are made through PREVENTION (prevention of the attitude that enables us to cause harm to ourselves and the world around us). In this case the prevention is accomplished through education programs in schools. If you are interested in finding out more about our many workshops and programs, contact us at our e-mail address above or:
