Adult Evening Program: Circle of Compassion and Spectrum
April 30 at 7 p.m. at Park View Education Centre in Bridgewater,
Nova Scotia, Canada. Organized by the Students for Ethical Treatment of
Animals (S.E.T.A.) and the Nova Scotia Humane Society.

This program looks at the connections between what we believe and how we live.
It is an opportunity to see which areas of our lives reflect our values and which do
not. When our lives are in line with our values we feel more of a sense of well
being. Part two gives participants a chance to see where stress and burn-out
and hopelessness come from and allows them to learn communication skills that
may make them more effective when speaking to those who do not have a similar
lifestyle or value system. A very interactive program.

The session will be conducted by Rae Sikora, an anthropologist and environ-
mental educator, has been a spokesperson for other species, the environment,
and non-violence for over 20 years. She has been featured in magazines and on
radio and television stations across the US and Canada and leads humane
education workshops for teachers in the Middle East. Rae is co-founder of the
Center for Compassionate Living in coastal Maine, where she and Zoe Weil lead
workshops and have created the nation's first Humane Education Certification
Program (HECP). The programs have redefined Humane Education to include
all animal and environmental issues as well as non-violence, diet and health,
consumerism, and human rights issues.

Everyone is welcome to attend. Anyone wishing to participate should e-mail me
privately. Deadline for responding is April 23.
