A Seattle Reading Group meets once a month to explore the book "Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life" by Karen Armstrong. This video offers a quick sneak peak into one meeting to hear the discussion, find out how the members take action, and learn how the experience has changed the participants.
Compassion is not a lightweight topic. It can feel a bit dangerous to share deep personal experiences and discuss important questions, such as "how do we talk with people who seem very different from us?"
The paperback version of "Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life" is now available in the U.S. and Canada. The hard cover version is available around the world. You're welcome to download a free "Reading Group Guide" at charterforcompassion.org/learn/readinggroups.
