In a time when many of us are called to activism, how can we draw upon our love and compassion to direct and sustain our efforts? How do we discover our inner resources and summon the courage that is needed in today’s world? How can we reach for resiliency as we face the barrage of the media and our inbox?
Based on the work of Joanna Macy, this workshop is designed to help transform fear and despair into inspiration and a sense of empowerment. We will explore gratitude, anger, grief, and hope and move into a deeper understanding of our own unique gifts. We will, also, look at what divides us and rediscover our connectivity with all life. Grounding our work in our relationship to the Earth, each of us will vision the way to create a more socially just, environmentally sustainable and spiritually fulfilling human presence on our planet.
This workshop is for long time activists as well as those who are exploring how to bring forth the beautiful world our hearts know is possible!
