His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama attended Seeds of Compassion in Seattle last year and recently attended the Vancouver Peace Summit in September 2009. These visits have inspired individuals and organizations to take action to awaken compassion in our children, ourselves, and our world.
You’re invited to attend a gathering at the Seattle Center on October 17, 2009 with the Compassionate Action Network (CAN), Seeds of Compassion, and Bellingham Compassion Movement.
The Dalai Lama Center for Peace and Education from Vancouver B.C. will also participate in the event.
We will self-organize around the following question:
"HOW SHALL WE INSPIRE AND SUPPORT COMPASSIONATE ACTION IN OURSELVES, OUR COMMUNITIES, AND OUR WORLD?"
Rather than listening to speeches we will share our gifts in an Open Space format allowing you to convene and attend sessions in the spirit of community, discovery, exploration, and collaboration. Participants will:
1. Engage with other leaders that share common goals.
2. Discover and promote actions for awakening compassion in business, education, environment, economics, healthcare, peace, social justice, and/or other areas.
3. Share community engagement strategies.
4. Strengthen and develop a local, regional, and global network.
5. Enjoy music, art, dance, stories, and food.
WHEN: SATURDAY, OCTOBER 17th from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM.
WHERE: Fisher Pavilion at the Seattle Center, 305 Harrison Street in Seattle
COST: $10.00 is the suggested donation to help cover the event costs.
RSVP: CAN members may RSVP on this web page. If you're not a CAN member, please email your RSVP to Jon Ramer at email@example.com or call 206-526-2323.
At the end of the day, our goal is to emerge refreshed, strengthened, and clearer about our own projects and how we can work together.
Your voice is essential to shape the future of compassionate action in our region. We’ll look forward to seeing you at 8:30AM on October 17th in Fisher Pavilion at the Seattle Center. If you have questions, please contact Jon Ramer at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
Update: The RSVP list on this website consists of CAN members only. Jon Ramer has a separate list for non-members. We easily expect to have 200 people attend this event.
