LOVE | Spiritual Perspectives on Compassion

The world is thirsty for healing. These challenging times call for a renewed commitment to love, service and healing.

Many spiritual and religious traditions offer methods that help us awaken, sustain and deepen our natural capacities for love, care and compassion for ourselves, others and our environment in the face of oppression, violence and apathy.

This course offers participants an opportunity to explore some of these practices with teachers from diverse religious traditions, including: Paul Knitter, Christianity; Rabbi Sheila Weinberg, Judaism; Homayra Ziad, Islam; John Makransky, Buddhism; Wendy Farley, Christianity; Anant Rambachan, Hinduism; Julia Forsythe, Quakerism; and Melanie Harris, Christianity.

Each week participants will access a new teaching and guided practice for self-study and reflection.
