Event Details

Sliding Scale: $75 – 200. Code AW2D18.

When we hear the news from media or our friends, we sometimes find ourselves turning away and/or shutting down because it feels so overwhelming. How can we access our strengths and turn to face reality? How do we move forward into activism, both as individuals and as communities?

This day is dedicated to building our capacities, through silent meditation, personal and group inquiry, sharing, and framing. Both from the facilitators and communally as a group, we will co-create the wisdom, courage, and inner strength to (re)engage with our world, and move forward together with full, resourced hearts and minds.

Young Adults (18-26) and Seniors (65+ with limited income) are invited to attend this day for $45.
