The Compassionate Leaders program involves local high school students as part of the Flourish Foundation. The Flourish Foundation is dedicated to promoting contemplative practices in communities to cultivate healthy habits of mind and inspire personal well-being, benevolent social action, and environmental stewardship. The Compassionate Leaders fulfill this mission by participating in international service trips that cultivate human connections and provide youth with tools to positively to engage in the world. Members of the Compassionate Leaders program will lead 20-minute meditations in the museum prior to that evening’s exhibition tour.
The Center is proud to make a donation to the Compassionate Leaders program in support of their upcoming service trips.
Part of The Center’s BIG IDEA project Contemplative Practice, March 31-June 23, 2017.
