Supporting helps build the critical mass for change. Critical mass means that we are building awareness, that we can be effective in taking action. Supporting a Quest, in any area, is becoming – starting to become – Visionary citizen.
Interested in attending a Visionary Society meeting on this topic? What we’ll do at the meeting:
We'll take a look at several insights about suffering. Then we will explore the place of suffering in our own life. Finally, we will think about how we can use suffering for self-transformation and social action.

"There are three ways to respond to grief. You can cry, you can be silent, or you can turn your sorrow into a song."
