Welcome to the double module 28-29! (Oct. 22 – Nov. 19)
In this module, we will explore our ability to engage the world (in all its suffering) in compassionate ways. We begin by examining our inner landscape and how we are addressing our own suffering. We do this so we can help others address their suffering in wholesome ways. What is the role, after all, of a spiritual guide when it comes to relieving suffering within people and cultures, and within systems that may be flawed or broken? As a spiritual guide how might you be called to be a “sacred activist”?

Please try to post module-based questions here, rather than sending us a separate e-mail. It will be easier to keep Q & A in one place, so everyone benefits. Of course, if you have a question of a more personal nature, please e-mail us.
We hope you will check in once each week to let us know how you are doing and to connect with your classmates.
Let the conversation begin! We welcome your thoughts and look forward to chatting it up with you!
