Singing Bowls have been used for centuries for healing and meditation. It's said that the sounds generated by these bowls promote healing, reduce stress, create calm, and address dis-ease. I'm new to this, obviously, but totally captured!

Among all the crushing images I saw at the Auschwitz-Birdenau Memorial and Museum, it was the hair that had the most immediate and lasting effect. Actual hair sheared  from the heads of every man, woman, and child prisoner; disinfected; wound in balls; and placed in net bags.  I saw a roomful of this hair, discolored by the years, but unmistakably human brown, gray and white hair.

In the KNOW!

I have found that I cannot count on apartments or hotels to have the cleaning products I need when I need them.  And, often, I need products immediately.  I choose not to buy products because the bottles contain much more product than I need and I refuse carry more than I need in my luggage.

This is a simple guided meditation for Giving and Receiving Compassion.  It is designed to allow for relaxation and absorption of self-compassion and compassion for others, such as friends, person(s) you know who may be struggling, and/or to more than one person.

Compassion is so important in our lives.  It enables the infinite capacity of human kindness and creativity to relieve suffering, connect us to ourselves and to each other, create justice, heal our planet, and protect the natural world with all its inhabitants.

Here is a brief introduction to "Cultivating Compassion through Travel": 

Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.”   — Anthony Bourdain

Travel, it is well known, is transformative in a variety of ways.  However, for significant, meaningful transformation, the traveler must have an open heart.  That is, a heart receptive to tolerance, empathy, appreciation and, ultimately, compassion for others and the cultures in which they live.  Without this, travel is mere sight seeing...a missed opportunity to embrace our complicated, challenging world and to learn to love one another.

This course will take participants through processes that bring awareness to any personal biases regarding practices and ideals of other countries, work through those thoughts to break through fears and/or negative views and see, more clearly, that people and cultures from all over the world, often are very much the same.  They want to be happy, healthy and safe.  All people want to take good care of their children so they also can lead happy lives, now and in the future.

"Cultivating Compassion through Travel" will be offered in the fall of 2019.  Fee:  $25
