Taking a Long, Loving Look at the Real
In this group we will look at what it means to develop a
compassionate heart and to see life from a contemplative stance. The
contemplative sees life as it is and not as she imagines it to be or wishes it
to be. We will draw on readings from poets, philosophers, and mystics to
help guide us along the path of equanimity and loving kindness.
We will use, Finding Inner
Courage by Mark Nepo as our primary text in this group. A limited
number of these books are available for purchase at the Seton Cove.
