Compassion Class (CC) 12
Thursdays 6-8 p.m. 2/21–5/9/2013
A newly designed course exploring “Compassion” from the
perspectives of body, mind, and spirit. Compassion is the major ethical tenet for all faith traditions. This course offers
small-group discussion believing that our communal sharing of compassion can facilitate “being” the change
we want to see in our conflicted world. By learning spiritual practices and techniques from the HeartMath Institute we can
increase our human capacity to be more resilient, open, flexible and compassionate. By incorporating principles of
Servant Leadership and Non-Violent Communication, we will reflect on the Judeo-Christian understanding of compassion through
the works of Karen Armstrong, Henri Nouwen and other spiritual teachers.
