Mary Freer’s book is here and she’s been waiting for you.
Every single time I meet Mary I feel better about myself, my life and the world around me. I don’t know how that happens, but if this book comes anywhere close to explaining it, you must buy it for everyone you know. Straight away.

Mary is the real deal.
She transformed the way I conceptualise compassion: a muscular strength best tended to with attention and delight. Anything Mary leads is a “YES PLEASE!” for me.
Author of Show Up Hard: A Roadmap for Helpers in Crisis.
Mary has been our fairy godmother, sprinkling compassion over everything she does. Whether she is conducting one-on-one interviews with Hollywood stars, facilitating small group workshops, or hosting large events she makes sure the audience knows that it is never about her, but about us, and how we can all be compassionate.

Mary Freer brings a fresh perspective to the role of compassion in our lives. This has really resonated with me personally and many of our staff at Ambulance Victoria who have attended her workshops and conferences. She has an innate ability to bring those from different backgrounds together for a common purpose.

Mary brings compassion to life; Mary’s passion, kindness and straight talk makes ‘compassion’ a real, tangible, practical and ‘doable’ practice in our daily interactions, especially in the workplace. I am sure her book will be a deeper extension into this work – I can’t wait to get my copy.

When I first met Mary Freer I realised what it meant to have an ‘aura’ and ever since her energy and commitment to bring this Compassion Revolution to life has been awe inspiring and done in a way that is truly Mary – full of generosity, humility, creativity, ruckus making, and an unapologetic commitment to make change.
