Community organizing is part of what I love to do in my organizing business and this is an event and organization which I highly recommend.
Compassion Fayetteville has scheduled a Compassion Conversation Café for Saturday, November 23rd from 10 am – 12 noon in Parish Hall at St Paul’s Episcopal Church in Fayetteville, Arkansas. The meeting will revolve around a moderated panel discussion followed by group café conversations. The panel will consist of people from a variety of backgrounds discussing the nuances of practicing compassion in their lives and how it can be expressed in Fayetteville and Northwest Arkansas.
Compassion Fayetteville Conversation Café is an open, hosted conversation and is designed for people to gather together to learn what compassion is and how to better express it in our community. At a Conversation Cafe there is nothing to join, no homework, no agenda, just a simple process that helps to shift us from small talk to BIG talk, i.e., conversations that will make a difference.
Compassion Fayetteville is an initiative developed from the Fayetteville Forward Economic Accountability Council’s (FFEAC) Inclusion Group. Compassion Fayetteville is a cooperative effort by a group of citizens who are volunteering their time to increase awareness, encourage and promote a culture of compassion through identifying, supporting and initiating new compassionate actions in Fayetteville. We are working to earn designation as a Compassionate City by Compassionate Action Network International, a worldwide network founded and inspired by the Charter for Compassion, a document that transcends religious, ideological, and cultural differences. All individuals, groups and organizations are welcome to participate.
