Radical Compassion in Preston, Lancashire UK

Here is the information/flyer for the May 11th workshop I’ll lead in Preston. I don’t know what “taster” means in British-speak. I’ve received word that musician David Lamotte will be joining me. Hope you can make it.

Mark Yaconelli in Preston – 11 May 2014

Mark Yaconelli is hosting a one-day taster session of his Radical Compassion Course in Preston this May.
In 2012, two Greenbelters Rev Bryony Davis and Andy Pratt joined Mark in California at the Claremont School of Theology to take part in the full course, which seeks to heal broken people and communities through contemplation, creativity and compassion.
The one-day taster session starts with a church service, featuring a talk from Mark, followed by lunch, and then a series of exercises to “help participants develop their capacity to be radically compassionate”.
Here’s more on the workshop:

The workshop is ideal for ministers, organisational leaders, social justice activists, teachers, parents, and anyone who seeks practical training in compassionate living. Individuals who attend the workshop will: Develop skills for self-compassion; Learn how to identify and transform difficult emotions; Develop techniques for relating to colleagues, clients, friends, family members, and even enemies with genuine compassion; Understand how to participate in social actions that confront injustice from a grounded place of truth rather than reactive anger.

The cost of the day is £25, including food and refreshments. For more information and to book a place, contact Andrew Pratt at andrewpratt1@btinternet.com
