Compassionate Communication - Sympathy, Empathy, and Apologies

November 9, 2017, 7:00pm - November 9, 2017, 10:30pm

One of the hardest things to know how to do is express sympathy for another who is hurt. It’s even harder if they think you are the one who has hurt them (and maybe you did)! Empathy is another thing and often confused with sympathy or pity. Finally, apologies are often ineffective or insincere, or in some other way fail to bring the desired effect. Non-violent communication has a unique take on all these elements of communication, which we will cover in tonight’s class, helping us to harmonize some of the most difficult parts of human relating! * –Rev. Fa Jun * $12 donation for non- members; free for members.

All About Spiritual Bypassing

November 12, 2017, 10:30am - November 12, 2017, 1:30pm

“Spiritual Bypassing” is a term coined by psychologist and meditator, John Wellwood, to describe the phenomena in which a person uses spiritual concepts to avoid doing important psychological healing or facing inappropriate behavior. It can affect us even if we don’t consider ourselves "spiritual"! This morning, we’ll learn all about some manifestations of spiritual bypassing, and how not to go too far with our practices of gratitude and optimism.

Just making sure the word gets out. A few nights ago we lost our friend Carmella, who had been struggling with illness and went peacefully in her sleep. We will have a special moment for her on Sunday before we begin taking down our De Los Muertos altar.

I spoke with Luigi today and of course it has hit him *very* hard. I'm compelled to ask you if you are the type to pray or hold someone in your thoughts, to please do so for Luigi. I don't know if he's the type to want a lot of calls or cards - maybe we should ask Isobel, but I imagine that our "holding-space" as they say here in California, could be of benefit.

With love

Compassionate Communication - How to Get What You Want!

October 12, 2017, 7:00pm - October 12, 2017, 10:30pm

Being compassionate doesn't mean being a doormat! But at the same time, if we learn to make requests with skill, there's a greater chance that another will want to meet our needs! Tonight's class on the art of compassionate communication will focus on how to make skillful requests. We'll explore tricks and tools from the system of Non-Violent Communication, as well as other systems, which will enable us to get our needs across clearly while still creating closeness and safety. Bring all your hardest communication challenges and a desire to learn and grow! Suggested donation: $12 (members of UUFLG are free!) [This class will be livestreamed - check the event page for details!]

Are you feeling concerned about the people losing livelihood, property, etc. in the fires in N. Cal? I'm wondering if maybe we can partner with an organization and take up collections of food, clothing, etc.
