Reading : Read chapters 8-12. Read slowly and allow your mind to move toward stories in your life triggered by the reading. Pay attention to these stories, trusting they have something important to teach you. If you find you are coming to your reading as a chore, put the book aside. Come back to it later.
Kind Action : This week choose one of the scenes that was especially relevant to you from this section of the book. Connect a character in the book to someone in your life, even if this requires a leap of imagination. Complete a related kind action for this person in your life, something that honors both the story and your chosen person.
Storytelling : We’ll continue each week with the process I introduced to you last week, picking a story from your life that was illuminated by a scene from this section of the book. Write your story and then edit it to a point where it is succinct, no more than three short paragraphs. What have you gained from this story and from this experience? Summarize this gain in a sentence and add it to the bottom of your story.
Comments Section : If you are so moved, either tell us about your kind action experience or share your story from the storytelling section. If you want, share both but post them as separate comments. Please feel free to comment on the postings of others, too.
