I would like to revise compass to include all members, married and single. Compass is about relationships and I would like to learn from all of our members.
COMPASS meets on the 4th Tuesday of every Month.
New! COMPASS 2014
We started a series on Brené Brown's The Power of Vulnerability. The course overview is listed below. Brené Brown is a sociologist, she studies people. She presents her information from a practical level, I find that much of what she says from a research background supports what we are learning in our spiritual pursuits. If you don't know her, please look her up on TED. Each session can stand alone, feel free to join us. We have a nice turn out, some lively discussions and great food!
Each session has up to 9 videos lasting 10 or more minutes. My intention is to up to 30 minutes of videos each 4th Tuesday. After each video we will discuss the questions that come with the course. There will be time to move around.
Knowing that we are a chatty bunch, we have flexibility. It may take up to 18 weeks to watch all the videos. So join new friends for some warmth and love during the chilly season. The sessions are moving faster and smoother than I anticipated. I think the sessions will be complete by the end of July, maybe sooner.
Bring friends! Bring food to share. No alcohol please. And come when you can. If you miss a date, no worries.

Session 5 : Guideposts to Wholehearted Living (Part 1)
"Wholeheartedness" is the term that Dr. Brown coined to describe people who have embraced their vulnerability as a strength instead of a weakness. During her research, she examined thousands of pieces of data to find out what these wholehearted people have in common. In this session, Brené outlines the first six of these ten qualities of wholehearted living that can serve as guideposts on our own journey.
Session 6 : Guideposts to Wholehearted Living (Part 2)
Dr. Brown continues her examination of the last four guideposts to wholehearted living, detailing how each of these relates to a specific vulnerability challenge to overcome. From guidance for finding meaningful work to infusing a greater sense of creativity and play into your life, she offers practical tools to help move towards living the full and rich life that is available to us. She also offers a live Q&A session this week, during which you can submit your questions for her to answer. Live Session with Brené Brown
