The Psychological and Spiritual Problem of Giving Yourself Away

March 17, 2000 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Friday Talk:

Women often agonize over a single question – am I too selfish? – struggling with the belief that focusing on ourselves is selfish when it comes to spiritual or religious concerns.

All religions instruct us to pay close attention to our intentions and actions in order to become responsible for our ethical and spiritual development. And yet, women have been uniformly discouraged in acquiring a knowledge of self-determination in their major life roles.
