Boundless Compassion by Joyce Rupp
 
                          With master teacher Joyce Rupp, we will learn about developing compassion.
Compassion will be discovered from science, medicine,
theology, spirituality, sociology, and psychology.
          We will be encouraged to explore personal and professional expressions of compassion,
                             and to re-energize our ability to offer loving kindness to those around us. 
The book is written in the form of daily readings/devotionals and thoughtful reflections.
You are invited to join with other women in this informal discussion group. We conclude at 10 a.m..
 
"Beautifully written, Joyce Rupp's moving and powerful work speaks of compassion as 'full immersion in the condition of being human.' Then she shows the way. Her exploration of how the heart might open to ourselves, to one another, to all living beings, and to the earth becomes a master class in love." --Paula D'Arcy, author of Winter of the Heart

"Joyce Rupp shares her experience of the incremental deepening of compassion amid an encouraging and inspiring assembly of scholars and sages of various traditions. As I read, I felt my heart relax into sweetness." --Sylvia Boorstein, Author of It's Easier Than You Think
 
 
 
 
 
 

JUST AS I AM is a women's group which meets on

The group was formed in 1996.  It consists of some who have been attending since then and others who have become part of the group in the following years.  There are long time members and new members.  The group studies books which have to do with wellness issues, body, mind, and spirit.  Click on the link below to see a list of books previously studied.  Time is taken for discussion, we do not have to hurry to finish a book.
