Practicing “Radical Compassion”

A 4-part study circle with Karen Hensel


Thursdays – Feb. 20, Mar.5 & 19, April 2
10 am to 12 pm
St. Matthew’s Episcopal Lounge

Over four sessions, our circle of women will journey together using a study group format to explore and apply the practices found in Tara Brach’s latest book, Radical Compassion: Learning to Love Yourself and Your World with the Practice of RAIN.

In Radical Compassion, mindfulness meditation teacher Tara Brach offers a road map for systematically awakening compassion when we need it the most, in the thick of daily life. Using a key tool of RAIN (Recognize, Allow, Investigate, Nurture), we learn to nourish inner resources that allow us to live true to ourselves and actively care for others. Radical Compassion offers a courageous pathway that can evolve our consciousness and bring more love and healing into our world.

Cost: $85 (4 Thursdays) Max: 8 women

This circle is full.

Meet Karen, your circle facilitator:

“After 30 years practicing law, I followed my heart’s desire when I trained in the art of Spiritual Direction with Sycamore Spirituality Center. In meeting with individuals and small groups for interfaith spiritual companioning, I hold space, deeply listen, and notice how Spirit moves through our many different lived experiences. I’ve facilitated women’s retreats and small groups over the years, and am always in awe of wisdom shared and healing connections made when people gather in circles.  I am excited to gather in a circle with you!”
