Interfaith Book Group February 10, 2015

Eleven members gathered and shared a delicious meal – hospitality of The Atlantic Institute!

Recognizing the potential for Silence to be a source of deep sharing, we began our discussion with 2 minutes of quiet. Then each person was offered the opportunity to share her/his response to the chapters we had read. This evoked a wide range of perspectives, and was followed by open discussion focusing on the steps to developing a genuine compassion for yourself so you will be able to extend it to others; a Muslim and Christian understanding of compassion for oneself; the ways of developing empathy toward others; the power of tears; some discerning thoughts about some of the practices offered by the author; meditation and contemplation; and the place of reason/or not in becoming compassionate…and much more.

On April 14th we will discuss The Fifth and Sixth Steps – Mindfulness and Action
