​UPCOMING WORKSHOP

​DEEP RESILIENCE
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.

Tampa Friends     1502 W. Sligh  Tampa, Fl.

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.
