Meditation & Reflective Journaling Class
Generosity: Stretching the Heart Space
The world spins on a dizzy axis of greed, hatred, and delusion. Generosity helps to slow down the meaningless spinning. How do you already contribute to the beauty, peace, and healing so needed to restore balance in an inequitable world through small acts of kindness? How might you stretch the heart space a bit more to include someone in your sphere of influence who is typically unheard, unseen because of age, ability, ethnicity, education level, economic status, gender, sexual orientation, size, religion, etc.?
Through mindfulness meditation and reflective journaling, come explore these themes supported by group process. Verna Myers said, “Diversity is being invited to the party; inclusion is being asked to dance.” Alone, an act of generosity can feel insignificant. But together we can dance, one breath, one step at a time.

(The class in Fremont is offered free of charge. I love taking time to contemplate a topic that is timely and beneficial for myself and others to explore through meditation and writing together. As absences affect the group energy and dynamics, it is requested that participants inform me of any absences in advance (barring unforeseen circumstances). Thank you for doing your best to show up on time. I am starting the next class at 6:30pm to try and accommodate those just getting off work and fighting traffic:)
