Listening Is a Spiritual Practice

Really listening is different from what we usually do, and it can be learned (that is, practiced).  As we listen to each other deeply and share with each other honestly, we find our common experience, our shared humanity. Deep listening blurs the boundary between the sacred and the secular, between the holy and the ordinary. Miracles can happen when we listen deeply to each other.

Reflections on Social Causes

 In these times, many of us feel the calling to engage more in social causes. Is that impulse to help enough? When are we helping without perpetuating cycles of injustice? Is selfless service possible? How can we sustain meaningful service and community engagement without finding ourselves drained and discouraged?  Rhonda Fleischer will share her reflections and experiences on this timely topic, based on a lifetime commitment to human service both domestically and in Africa. Her personal journey has involved traveling across continents, working with runaway and homeless youth, managing large, multi-service organizations, helping refugees from throughout Africa prepare to resettle in the U.S, and empowering young girls right here in Rockland County. Together, we’ll explore how we can cultivate a spiritual and practical approach to service that brings benefit in an imperfect world
