“You’re invited to spend 2023 growing compassion for yourself, your friends, and even those who today you might describe as enemies. We’ll interrogate our emotions, reasoning, decision-making, and more as we work to join the infinite game of building peace.”

Specifically about this July 27 session:
One of the great paradoxes of life in the United States is that while we all experience loss, we’re largely left on our own to process and integrate it. As we begin moving our attention from the interior world where we’ve spent the first half of this series, we look to Francis Weller for what he calls “an apprenticeship with sorrow.” This opportunity to face our own losses, whatever they may be, is a crucial step toward facing others’ loss. Even more importantly, it equips us to be present to the loss and suffering in the world without being overcome by it.
