Radiating Compassion For Oneself Into the World
Weekly sittings are held on Monday nights from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall at Covenant Church, 4949 Caroline St. They are open to people of all faiths, or none. Currently, they are led by Ginger Clarkson, a Community Dharma Leader trained by James Baraz, Jack Kornfield and other teachers at Spirit Rock Meditation Center in California. Typically, the sessions begin with a few minutes of Qi Gong exercises, followed by approximately half an hour of silent meditation. A talk applying principles of Buddhist philosophy to everyday life often follows, succeeded by discussion.
Parking is available for free. Chairs will be provided, but if you prefer to sit on the floor, please bring your own cushion or bench.

Unity of Houston, Annex 104
“People are never the problem, strategies are the source of all conflicts.” This is my favorite quote by Marshall B. Rosenberg, Ph.D. I have been an avid student of Nonviolent Communication since my first introduction to it in 2010. Empathy and compassion are the only tools I have found effective for sustainably resolving intrapersonal and/or interpersonal conflicts. Though they may not work every time in every instance with every body (owing to skills and needs) they are the only stratagems to provide sustainable solutions in conflicts of any description in my experience. — Ed Halloran
Class Facilitator: Ed Halloran
