Purchase Compassion Beads
Compassion beads cost $5 per set, plus a flat rate of $5 for shipping per order. You will have the opportunity to increase the number of beads you order in the shopping cart.
Compassion Beads were inspired by a meditation exercise created by Dr. James Doty. The beads start with Compassion and end with Love: The order of the beads is: Compassion, Dignity, Equanimity, Forgiveness, Gratitude, Humility, Integrity, Justice, Kindness and Love, and the bead string ends with a golden bead symbolizing the Golden Rule: “Treat Others as you wish to be treated yourself.”
Each set of compassion beads is hand-made by Compassionate San Antonio / The San Antonio peaceCENTER. Sales help support our mission.
These prices apply to US orders only.
