Personal Growth for a Flourishing Planet
A WORKSHOP FOR CHANGE-MAKERS
An experiential gathering to summon the regenerative power
within us so as to more wisely navigate the turmoil of these
times and the particular trials of our activism.
This workshop is for justice-seekers, activists, trail-blazers,
messengers of a new paradigm, and all those making a
positive difference in "small" or "big" ways and who:
~are feeling tested by the circumstances of our volatile world
and/or challenged in their activism in some ways;
~are open to being present to their own evolving edge
and to what might grow from there;
~want to experience a renewed vitality that
enhances their advocacy.

ABOUT WHAT WE WILL BE DOING
To bring forth our capacities to feel centered
and re-inspired we will engage in practices that:
~awaken inner qualities that ground and enliven us
We’ll tap into sources of internal vitality that counteract
the challenges we face and help us rest in our deeper powers -
"maybe the best offering we can make to our world".
~bring to awareness our inner responses to the challenges
of our activism and to the suffering in the world
We’ll validate them as wholesome and life-affirming,
and as initiatory experiences that uplift
our role as change-makers.
~shift perspectives from isolation to connectedness
enabling us to "see with new eyes"
We’ll look at our responses within wider contexts
and draw inspiration from our membership
in the web of life.
~bridge our experiences this day to our lives as activists in practical ways
We’ll explore the practical aspect of the ideas discussed and
clarify our next steps from a stronger center of gravity within.
The question is not if we will be extremists, but what kind of extremists we will be. The nation and the world are
in dire need of creative extremists.
