Before moving on to your ninth mission, take a moment to reflect on yesterday’s mission. What was it like to realize that you own your feelings, and that you can learn to control them? Did your feelings about the person who you thought hurt you change after you thought about the good things in your life? Did your feelings of sadness or anger change? What might need to happen in order for you to forgive this person completely?
I took the webinar on kindness and compassion to face challenging times and I learned techniques that were amazing I will write the whole process here this weekend! I also will place pictures on the compassion mosaique once I learn how to use Twitter.
Your ninth mission, Agents, is to bring comfort to those who are not feeling well.
Bring comfort to kids who are not feeling well by making art to hang in the nurse’s or principal’s office. Draw some colorful pictures or decorations that will let these fellow students know that you are wishing them to get better. Then, deliver the pictures to your school nurse!
Agents, remember... As you fulfill your mission, share your experiences on the Compassion Report Map! Your report inspires others, amplifying the power of your compassion and generosity!
On December 10th, Human Rights Day, the Giving Games will culminate in a global “Wopida,” which is an Octei Sakowin Thanksgiving Ceremony. This Wopida will be led by Chief Arvol Looking Horse, Chief Phil, and Faith Spotted Eagle, and brings together Indigenous communities, youth, interfaith leaders, and intergenerational allies to honor the blessings of life, light the spirit of giving, and support water protectors at Sacred Sites such as Standing Rock in North Dakota and around the world.
During the Giving Games, we will Pray With Standing Rock and “Build a Global Fire” that leads up to the Global Wopida. Build a Global Fire is a collective activity where Agents of Compassion and all allies...
Light an honoring flame (such as a candle), then...
Take a video (or photo) stating what you are grateful for, and sharing what your intentions are for the human family.
Participants then share their creation on social media with the hashtag #GlobalFire on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and/or the Compassion Report Map!
When: 11/29 through 12/10 Where: Everywhere, All At Once! Why: Solidarity to Protect Mother Earth!
Each day during the Giving Games, the Compassion Torch will be passed to a different Champion of Compassion. For Day 9 of the Giving Games, we are overjoyed to pass the Compassion Torch from Compassionate Louisville to Roots and Shoots, the youth-led community action organization inspired by the work and guidance of Dr. Jane Goodall!
