Compassion & Wisdom Study Group.
Ashgrove Medical Centre
Lower Level - 6633 Highway #7- Suite #012,
Two foundations for happiness are wisdom and compassion. Compassion is the primary attitude leading to personal and collective happiness. Wisdom, defined as an understanding of our mind and of the world in which we live, is a key factor in developing compassion. The aim of the Study Group is to facilitate changes in the minds of participants in the direction of happiness, through wisdom and compassion.
We will meet on the following dates in 2019 (there will also be more dates later in 2019):
Saturday, January 12th
Saturday, February 23rd
Time: 12pm -3pm on both days
Cost: $100.00 for both days
We will read the book - Seeking the Heart of Wisdom - by Joseph Goldstein & Jack Kornfield - and discuss passages of it during our time together. There will also be time for breath, movement, body awareness exercises and journalling.
We discuss different ways that we can contribute to our communities by giving in different ways – examples, food drive, environmental activity, something for elders. Empowering each of us to apply what we have learned in our neighbourhoods and communities.
