About the event
"Action isn't a burden to be hoisted up and lugged around on our shoulders. It is something we are. The work we have to do can be seen as a kind of coming alive. More than some moral imperative, it's an awakening to our true nature, a releasing of our gifts."- -- Joanna Macy
Now more than ever, I am feeling a need to recharge myself when I listen to the news and ask myself to be present for all that comes up in me. Despair, anger, hopelessness are feelings that are impermanent, if examined and accepted rather than repressed.
We will invite each other to be with all that arises for us, especially those parts that we may tend to push away. We will look at our habitual reactions and thought patterns, and learn how to practice other choices. Using Compassionate Communication enhanced by mindfulness, we will explore how we can turn something that is bothering us into a doable action.
