FRAMINGHAM – Open Spirit Center in Framingham is hosting Cultivating Calm: A Virtual Conference for three consecutive Sunday afternoons from 3:30-5 p.m.
The first one has already taken place but the next two are scheduled for May 24 and 31.
May 24: We will be joined by Dr. Arthur Ciaramicoli, Ed.D, Ph.D., author of The Triumph of Diversity, a newly published book on our human interconnectedness.
Dr. Ciaramicoli analyzes prejudice from his clinical practice by tracing it to personal origins and relates true stories of courageous individuals who have overcome hatred, cruelty and sadism to become open-minded, loving resilient people.
He re-emphasizes that we are in desperate need of those who unite rather than those who ostracize.
May 31: We will be joined by Joti Royster, Buddhist Lay Renunciate affiliated with Temple Forest Monastery in Temple, New Hampshire. She will offer a meditation, followed by reflection and discussion of tools to cultivate calm and joyful living through practicing love, acceptance, empathy and generosity in this time.
