(friends of Lord Flea, this is what I’m up to in my hometown…maybe you can do something similar in yours?)
A new opportunity is being created for all of us to come together to grow in a community-conscious way, by discussing and practicing — the idea of COMPASSION.
As an adjunct to the work of St. Augustine Initiative for Compassion (a non-affiliated group of compassionate citizens committed to spreading the simple, but oft-misunderstood concept of human compassion), we are proud to announce that starting this New Year of 2013 we will be holding a monthly discussion group of:
Simply Sharing about Compassion
We will use the “Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life” as a guide (book’s link: http://amzn.to/S4WYtr) . The only affiliation our group holds is with the Charter for Compassion (more info at www.charterforcompassion.org), a grassroots movement to promote global healing.
People from all walks of life — all faiths, all cultures, all beliefs — are invited to participate in our 1-hour monthly discussion. Everyone is encouraged to share. There is no teaching, promotion or agenda — only sharing about how to make our world come together in true compassion. This is a great place to learn how to be more effective in our own private lives, and take what we learn out to others, creating the Ripple Effect.
Our meetings will take place on the FIRST Wednesday of each month 7-8pm at St. Cyprian’s Community Center (Address below).
Please forward this invitation to any individual(s) or group(s)s that you think would be interested in spreading compassion in this world. Our purpose is to heal differences with love and understanding of Self and Others by first understanding, and then practicing the Golden Rule.
Feel free to write back with any questions.
Future correspondences will come from the group’s new email: firstname.lastname@example.org
And we will be sending out a reminder just before each meeting.
So please mark your calenders NOW for January 2 so we can meet you at our first gathering, 7-8pm.
In the Light of Compassion,
teZa Lord and Ervin Bullock
