Living the Generous Life
If you knew what I know about the power of generosity,
you would not let a single meal go by without sharing it.
The Generosity of Spirit
We began exploring "generosity of spirit" as an inquiry into the rewards and challenges of giving and receiving. This work quickly led to a cross-cultural inquiry into the nature of generosity and its history as it appears throughout the stories of the world's various traditions. Our project team uncovered 230+ stories from more than 30 of the world's wisdom traditions that focus on what liberates our innate generosity of spirit and what blocks it. Some of them are contained in this 50-page guide that was created to bring the mysteries of giving and receiving to the surface for practice in daily life. Each chapter ends with questions for reflection.
