Today's social and environmental challenges call all of us to engage in creating a more humane and ecologically sustainable future. But, when the media is tuned to the hyperbole of catastrophe in all areas of our lives - security and safety, economic collapse, ecological disaster - what motivates and inspires individuals to engage in initiatives to create positive change? A feeling of compassion - the desire to help - is often the response when we become aware of the distress of another human being, or an animal, or an entire community of people, or an endangered species. However, such feelings do not necessarily lead to engagement in either personal or communal action. In fact, we are often overwhelmed by these needs and unsure of how we could adequately respond. Please join us to further our understanding of the intersection of compassion, connection, and engaged social action through your reflection, research, and practice.
