      Each week we will explore a pro-social trait featured in Roshi Joan Halifax's book Standing at the Edge: Finding Freedom Where Fear and Courage Meet. Chapter titles are: Altruism, Empathy, Integrity, Respect, Engagement, Compassion.

      Guided contemplative practices will commence each class and conversation inspired by Halifax's wise writings will be the core of this interactive, experiential, and dynamic class. Participants will be asked to read from Halifax's book each week (about 40 pages per week) in order to create skills and a realistic action plan for compassionately caring for themselves and their community. Prior to the first class, please obtain a copy of Standing at the Edge: Finding Freedom Where Fear and Courage Meet and read both the Introduction and Section 1—Altruism.

      Instructor: Tia Rich, PhD, is the founder and director of Contemplation by Design. She has been integrating contemplative practice into resilience, stress management, and career training programs and academic classes at Stanford University and Medical Center since 1984.
