Would you like to learn how to see others with more compassion and empathy? On April 15, Paul Schroeder and Susanna Rempel of New City Initiative will offer a lunchtime mini-seminar on “Compassionate Seeing” at 1st Congregational UCC Church in downtown Portland. The seminar will take place from 11:30 AM – 1 PM. The seminar will offer simple, practical tools you can start using right away to help you avoid judgments, engage your curiosity and wonder, and use creativity and imagination in everyday encounters with other people.
