<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> We recently held a VIRTUES WORKSHOP ON COMPASSION! Deepening the virtue of compassion, using principals of the Virtues Project (with Nancy Nord Kanagy) and Compassionate Napa Valley (with Mary Poeck and Laura Keller).
Compassion is deep empathy for another who is suffering or living with misfortune. It is understanding and caring. Compassion flows freely from our hearts when we let go of judgments and seek to understand.
Attendees were asked to explore their virtues. Click and view the list > Virtues: The Gifts of Character
We are Compassionate Napa Valley
As a community we intend to:
Live as compassionate beings,
Foster compassionate values, and
Inspire compassionate action in the Napa Valley
We welcome all hearts to co-journey with us as we live the "Golden Rule." We work in unity with the global aims of the Charter for Compassion in all sectors (peace and non violence, health care, business, environment, education, religion and spirituality, science and research, the arts, and governance - politics) and on behalf of all beings on the planet.
Dear Compassionate Friends,
It is with heartfelt thanks and much appreciation that Compassionate Napa Valley acknowledges the Napa Valley Register and Barry Eberlinger for the outstanding article on the worldwide compassionate movement that appeared on the front page of the June 14, Sunday edition. Click here for the link
We are very excited about the Proclamation – Declaration of Napa County as a Compassionate Community that the Napa County Board of Supervisors presented to Compassionate Napa Valley. It is big step forward in our movement toward having Napa County and the cities within the County adopt the Charter for Compassion and commit to a 10 year plan for Compassion, putting us on the “International Charter for Compassion map” so to speak.
Come join us the 2nd Monday of every month (see meeting schedule below). We welcome ALL compassionate minded people!
