Book Discussion: Compassion in Action

  • Living Earth 5311 Southeast Powell Boulevard Portland, OR, 97206 United States (map)

Our first book discussion group will focus on "Compassion in Action"  by Ram Dass and Miribai Bush for October and November.

How can we as individuals work for social justice with a fierce compassion?

We will explore issues covered in the book such as the idea that compassion in action is something done for others but nurtures the self.

Participants are asked to read the first part of the book by Ram Dass for October and the second part by Mirabai Bush for November.  

 Come share your ideas and perspectives!

We are eager to create a line-up of books that will touch the hearts of those involved in the group.   We have several other books in mind, but we would like your ideas and input before we create a calendar for the coming year.

We are asking for a suggested donation of $5-$20 for each group meeting but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

***Living Earth has a few used copies of  "Compassion in Action" available for $7. Contact Robyn  or Contact Jan  to reserve a used copy and for all questions about the book discussion group.***
