Submitted by the Event Organizer
Volunteers of all ages are invited to join life coaches, therapists and counselors in brightening the lives of the homeless in San Francisco by donating needed items, lend emotional and mental support on the streets of San Francisco on Christmas morning, December 25, 2015.
Meet in the grass across from Bill Graham Theater in the parking across the street in the grass at 9 am to circle up for and intention setting, meet and greet. You’ll then share a quick universal prayer for guidance and head out on a walk to serve.
Bring Dollar Store items if you are able; granola bars, coats, blankets, warm drinks, socks, self help books, whatever you have to offer but most of all your huge heart and willingness to reach out and just be with folks. Come either way as their will be items provided.
Along the walk you’ll engage people with offerings of needed supplies and spend time practicing kindness and counseling basics (listening, reflecting back, modeling compassionate communication, helping to thicken alternate story lines, etc…) if you do not have training as a coach, counselor, social worker – come and learn things that you can apply in your own life or to help others.
These walks sponsored by Harmonic Humanity have been a healing, heartwarming and enjoyable growing experience for those who have attended on many levels and for the many lives that have been touched.
Homelessness affects millions annually and the challenges people face while amidst these hard circumstance are diverse. Unemployment, depression, displacement, drug addiction, domestic abuse, poverty, lack of education and mental illness only scratch the surface.
By making time to reach out to people in this situation you are better educating ourselves on an important issue in the world and you send a direct message that they are not forgotten and valuable players in society. You are also modeling a kind of humanitarianism critical to our individual and collective evolution.
