Past Workshops conducted by Towards Ahimsa

Compassionate Communication

In this session, participants learned from sharing with one another.  Participants were led through trust games and invited to share personal stories to learn from one another.  The Jain principles of Anekantavada and Aparigraha were explored in connection with mental & financial health.  Participants left with journal writing homework and potential skills they could use to encourage Ahimsa in their own home. Focus: Jain Society of Toronto, Women’s Group March 28, 2012 at 1:30-4:30pm.
