Compassionate Listeners Program

Compassionate Listeners Program

For those who are going through a challenging time and would benefit from peer support, we offer a compassionate listener program. This group of listeners includes Vic Lopez, Lynne Sholler, Judy Gerhardt, Susan McGinness, Alena George, Ross Park, Ellen Park and Ginger St. Ours. If you feel it would be supportive simply to chat with a compassionate peer listener during a time of difficulty, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Cynthia and Kristin ( or 970-426-8983), our operations managers, who can connect you directly. It’s important to note that this is not therapy or a professional service but rather a mutual exchange of open-hearted presence during a challenging time. May we all weather the storms of this human life together.

“Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It’s a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity.”

-Pema Chodron
