Building Community: Facing reality: What do you do when you’ve hurt someone?

December 10th

Date details +
    Room: Library or other space

    We’ve all been there: a friend, loved one, or coworker is standing in front of you telling you that you screwed up and they got hurt. Maybe you shot your mouth off or acted in disrespectful way. Maybe you didn’t mean it like they heard it, or maybe you did. Regardless, you’re in the hot seat now and you’ve got to react. What do you do?

    This talk will explore our reactions to being confronted with the reality that our actions lead to someone else being hurt. Through mindful group exploration, we’ll investigate why these situations can be so volatile and how mindfulness, compassion, and equanimity can create opportunities for healing and reconciliation.
