- OCT. 29: Sitting in the Turbulence: Caring about suffering we see around us might feel like a lot to carry, so how do we keep caring without feeling burdened?
- NOV. 05: Taking Sides: It seems like the world has never been so divided and polarized. What's our part in it, and how can we stay committed to what feels right, while not cutting off or taking sides?
- NOV. 12: Common Ground: It's easy to feel resentful or judgmental when we think others are wrong. How do we feel connected to, and compassion for, those whose views are not the same as ours?
- NOV. 19: Our Thanksgiving: If our suffering has a purpose, maybe it is to teach us empathy for other's suffering. How can we acknowledge our tough challenges and also feel grateful for what we have?
Our facilitators always share great resources. We'll be posting them here.
