    You are warmly invited to join a participant-led study group focused on Lojong, the ancient Tibetan guide for developing compassion and relieving the sufferings of ego. We meet every Thursday evening at 7:00 to explore a different slogan. We'll be using as study texts Pema Chodron's Start Where You Are and Norman Fischer's Training in Compassion
