Compassionate Self, Compassionate World

*Requires advance registration (email lanigan@stpetersphila.org)

Compassion is a practice of acknowledging, allowing, experiencing, and opening our hearts to suffering: our own suffering as well as the suffering of others. Intentionally cultivating our capacity for compassion can help us to better understand and connect with others in our everyday lives. This two-week mindfulness-based course offers an opportunity to grow in our own ability to both give and receive compassion. We’ll learn the practice of loving-kindness meditation, along with other mindful tools for bringing more compassion into our daily lives. Our facilitator, Robert Pileggi, MSS, LCSW, is a social worker and psychotherapist who trained as a mindfulness teacher at Jefferson University and UC San Diego. He is also a certified yoga instructor and an ordained Interfaith minister.

Grow spiritually, intellectually, creatively, and emotionally with an Adult Education class at St. Peter’s Church. We offer multiple classes to pique your interest each Sunday morning at 10 a.m. Classes take place on the 2nd floor of St. Peter’s School. All classes are drop-in and no pre-registration is required, unless otherwise stated. Questions? Email Rev. Sean Lanigan at lanigan@stpetersphila.org.
