This short audio presentation by Dr Denis McBrinn and narrated by Sara Dylan is designed to bring a clear understanding of what giving means, how to do more of it in your life it, and to lead you gently into reflection on the level of giving currently in your life.
“The heart that gives, gathers.” Tao Te Ching
Much happiness can be obtained by giving.
When we give of ourselves to others we feel the glow of the life force flowing through us.
Our sense of spiritual fulfilment is strongly associated with our contribution to the well-being of others.
No one can survive without others contributing in some way to their welfare.
New born babies do not survive unless they are given care and attention from others. Babies cannot develop alone.
Giving and receiving is an essential human need. We have evolved to give and to receive.
How this short audio learning experience works:
This audio presentation has been designed using an experiential learning model, Kolb, D. A. (1984): concrete learning, reflective observation, abstract conceptualization, and active experimentation.
By taking this approach we hope to cater for all learning styles.
You will be given specific new information in the recording usually as “key tips”, “explanations” and “quotes”. You will be led through a gentle but positive meditative reflection process to assist you before conceptualisation and then putting your new skills into practice.
You will be encouraged to return to the recording from time to time to re-listen and reinforce your learning and the desired changes in your life.
