Power of Community Conversation Guide
THE POWER OF COMMUNITY, a Global Spirit program, explores what it's like to live in a spiritual community, both the challenges and the potential to transform individual and collective consciousness, and catalyze positive societal change. Spiritual director to many of New York’s homeless youth, Adam Bucko, and Buddhist teacher and pioneer in the field of end-of-life care, Roshi Joan Halifax, PhD, share their insights and experiences as part of Christian contemplative and Zen Buddhist communities.
This stand-alone conversation guide introduces four related topics, (new monastics, creating sacred spaces, prayer and contemplation, new concepts of community), featuring short clips from the program and questions for reflection. Use it on your own, in writing exercises, or with others in a conversation format.
