I did not grow up in the US and I don’t have kids. I have a niece and nephew who live far away. People tend not to ask me to baby sit for them. (I wonder why? Ha!)
What does it mean to be radically welcoming? I attended two events this week that led me to think about this question.
Compassionate Atlanta, a non-profit organization that seeks to raise awareness about the benefits of compassionate action in the Greater Atlanta area, recently sponsored an engaging workshop on empathetic communication at Kavarna coffee house in Decatur, Georgia.
I have a six-year-old nephew, Saul, who is very animated and joyful. He is excited about so many different things.
I have a confession to make. I unfriended an old friend from my Facebook page this week.
There are so many ways to show up compassionately in this world. At CA, we often talk of 3-D compassion: compassion for ourselves, compassion for others and compassion for the earth.
