Compassion Workshop with Frank Rogers
The Way of Radical Compassion:
Living Jesus’ Spiritual Path in Our Lives and Communities
Saturday January 27th, 2018 @ 10AM – 2pm (Lunch Included)
At our Harmony Toluca Lake campus
Jesus not only taught a way of personal and social transformation rooted in a radical understanding of compassion; he yearned that persons and communities would truly know its restorative promise. For him, compassion is the secret to freeing us from all the internal chaos within us that prevents us from being the grounded people of care and vitality we are deep inside; and compassion is the bond that restores relationships whether at home, in the workplace, or in the public square. This day-long workshop—through stories, contemplative practices, and reflection exercises—will offer an experiential introduction to the restorative power of compassion both for our personal well-being and for sustaining our relationships.
