Finding Connection in Difficult Times (San Juan Center)
Join us for a course and guided conversation in developing compassion for one’s self and others. The course begins with curiosity as an entry into compassion, and deepens through a series of experiential exercises and guided readings and discussions about how we can connect as individuals, community members, and in society-at-large. Writings by Brene Brown, Margaret Wheatley, Rollo May, and others will be brought in to enrich the conversation. Instructor Oak Boesky will share how story has the power to shape whole societies as well as our individual lives. Her passion is in using the art of conversation to build bridges between islands of belief, those seemingly unnavigable waters that exist between one belief system and another. Oak has completed her coursework for doctorate in Leadership and Social Transformation and is currently writing her dissertation. Text to accompany the course Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life by Karen Armstrong is included with course fee.
