This is not a course about changing the world out there. It is about addressing the so-called small stuff of life that exists in and around us, and we will build on the premise that knowing, expanding and fine-tuning who we are is the most effective way to make a difference for other people. The course will be highly experiential as we begin with learning to receive from others and ask for what we need. We will move into making a difference for others and through service by strengthening our active listening skills, setting boundaries, and examining how we treat others and how we allow ourselves to be treated. We will also explore living through the heart (with some physiological experiences) as the primary pathway of kindness and compassion.
