RYTHEM OF COMPASSION
Caring for Self, Connecting with Society with Gail Straub
In these troubled times many of us are taking a long, hard look at the state of our souls as well as the state of the world. We recognize that at the deepest level our own health is inseparable from the health of the world, so if we wish to thrive society must also thrive.
In this workshop we’ll explore how to find your rhythm of compassion—an innate rhythm balancing care for soul and society. Gail Straub believes we each have a unique rhythm of compassion, and when we learn to follow our rhythm compassion blossoms in profound and inspiring ways.

SAMPLE EXERCISES FROM THE RHYTHM OF COMPASSION
As far back as I can remember I’ve been searching for my tribe–those people who feel equally passionate about the care of their souls as they do about the care of the world. I’ve been blessed to find many of them, including my husband. Along the way I’ve dedicated much of my life’s work to teaching people about the rich and complex intersection between the inner life and the life of service. I’ve come to think of this relationship between soul and society much like following the in-breath and the out-breath, as in meditation practice. There’s a natural time for the in-breath of caring for self and family, and a natural time for the out-breath of caring for the needs of the world. The challenge is to become skillful in following our rhythm–knowing when it’s time to go inward and when to go out into the community.
