Heartstrong Activist: A Workshop for Changemakers
Living in these divisive and tumultuous times fills us with passion and energy to work toward the life-nourishing and just world that we want for ourselves, all beings, and future generations. Life also tests our mettle and can be draining and enraging. How do we work with the fear, anger, overwhelm, hopes and other strong emotions that roil us? How do we move toward positive visioning and co-creating? To make beneficial, transformational change in society, we must acknowledge and look straight into the truths in our hearts, bodies and minds. As 21st century Earth citizens intertwined in an unraveling web of life, sacred activists know the rejuvenating, regenerating power of coming together in community to nurture the light, hold all that is present, and voice from our deepest spaces. The Work That Reconnects, developed over the past 40 years by Joanna Macy and many colleagues, provides time-tested personal and group practices to help empower us. Gratitude, honoring our pain, seeing with new eyes, and resolve to go forth with intention tap into universal wisdoms and instill in us new energies for creativity and collaboration. Join us for a heartfelt day.
