Compassion – A Spiritual Technology?

Hope you had an awesome spring break!

L3 is back this Wednesday, 3/27 11 am – 1 pm, Nanticoke Room, Stamp Union.

We will view a few minutes of a Krista Tippett TedTalk and chat about

Compassion – A Spiritual Technology?

Do you agree with Krista’s quote below?:

“I will paraphrase Einstein. . .and say that humanity, the future of humanity, needs this technology (compassion) as much as it needs all the others that have now connected us and set before us the terrifying and wondrous possibility of actually becoming one human race.”

What is compassion?  Where have you experienced it on campus? Or not?When have you given or received compassion recently? Does compassion have a role to play in scientific endeavors? Is compassion something you are called to based on your spiritual, faith or secular core values?

This topic is part of our L3 continuing semester series Creating Unity in an Age of Polarization.

Hope you can join us for lunch.  Come and go as needed, and bring/invite your friends! Looking forward to seeing you soon.  : )

 

L3, Wednesday, February 27 – Intellectual Humility

Join us for our L3 weekly lunch discussion tomorrow, Wednesday February 27. Our theme for this Spring 2019 semester is Creating Unity in an Age of Polarization!

Our topic for tomorrow will be intellectual humility.

Here is an article that we will be using to guide our conversation. Some questions to reflect on are; How does intellectual humility ease the tension that polarization perpetuates? Why does our political discourse view humility as a weakness or evidence of no confidence/conviction?

We look forward to seeing you this week. Please share with your friends!

especially be focusing on ways to de-stress and sources of
support.
Our topic tomorrow is “Got Inspiration?”

Lunch included!
What are your sources of inspiration from your religious/spiritual/secular
tradition?
Holy Writings?  Activists? Poetry? Favorite quotes or role models? Prayer?

for current challenges and to prepare for upcoming finals etc.
Come take a break that will help to reset your outlook

Our topic Wednesday 11/14 : L3: Power of Purpose – GOT GRATITUDE?

Pyon Su room 2108, Stamp Student Union, 12:00-2:00pm come and go as needed

How do you express gratitude when you don’t feel it in your heart? When times are tough? When it seems your faith/spirituality/beliefs/secular core values are being tested?

Is gratitude a choice, practice or option?

Can gratitude help us cope with crisis?

Come for lunch to discuss how during the upcoming season of giving we can put gratitude into perspective beyond our own reality.

“Those with a grateful mindset tend to see the message in the mess. And even though life may knock them down, the grateful find reasons, if even small ones, to get up.”― Steve Maraboli
