Great Love in Little Ways: A Workshop Regarding Kindness
with Gunilla Norris
As much as the air we breathe, the water we drink, the earth we stand upon and the sunlight that warms us, we need kindness. It is the fifth element that caresses us, brings us together and sustains us. We know that to practice kindness we need vital images. The soul cannot dream or create without them. Now is a crucial time to invoke kindness, and so be able to embody it more fully so that our communities may be viable homes for all of us.
Together we will be exploring how self-kindness and care are essential to a greater practice of kindness in our families, work places and communities. When we open our hearts to the hidden needs that we all have and when we learn to perceive the small and wondrous ways we can share kindness with others, we will be on the classical path in the spiritual life at the center of all traditions.
We will intuit ways suited to our personalities to practice kindness and to extend it to others. Wear comfortable clothing. Come as you are. Bring your humor and your heart. A journal would also be helpful. Space is limited. Fee includes program and lunch.
The program, on Saturday, May 13, 2017, will run from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The cost is $90.
