Volunteering can educate your heart

Are you interested in strengthening or enlarging your heart?  One of the best ways to do this is through volunteering, which can bring you into a relationship with others.  Xavier Le Pichon, has observed it may take a big awakening, such as Dorothy Day experienced at the age eight, during the San Francisco earthquake.  Once you develop companionship, walking with a suffering person, your heart gets educated.  They teach you a new way of being. We become educated by being in relationship with others.

There are a vast number of volunteer opportunities which can help us to become better educated by being in relationship with others.  Mentoring and tutoring are among the best opportunities.  To learn about volunteer openings in the Twin Cities check out Hands on Twin Cities.
