If we want to create a viable, peaceful world, we've got to integrate compassion into the gritty realities of 21st century life.

- Karen Armstrong

Compassion is a state of being and it is also the practice of acting in the world for the greater good. This five-week course focuses on building skills, expanding perspectives, developing vision, and exploring spiritual practices that are critical in fully acknowledging, directly confronting, and actively engaging in the “gritty realities of 21st century life.” The course aims to shed light on some of today’s realities, to offer hope through stories and insights of spiritual leaders, scholars, and activists who have integrated compassion into difficult contexts, and to cultivate within you actions you can take to integrate compassion into the gritty realities that call you to attention. Learn how you can engage on a local level and explore ways you can contribute in creating more just communities. This course will be highly interactive with small group dialogue, partner sharing, and experiential activities.
