Throughout our time together we will offer instructions to bring together contemplation, inquiry and meaningful action to foster spiritual and social transformation.
Working together to support a meaningful cause aimed to alleviate poverty and suffering in places we may never visit can be a deeply satisfying experience. When combined with periods of meditation, inquiry, sharing and presence, expressing our care for the world in this way can be deeply nourishing, joyful and insightful.
We hope this opportunity to manifest the spirit of care and compassion in the world will allow us to experience directly the "interwovenness" of the human community on this precious and beautiful planet.
