December 8 @ 9:30 am - 1:30 pm

Free
logo for the truth school

The influence of the dominant culture in the U.S. on social justice activism and organizing often goes unnoticed. In our culture, busyness, mind over heart, getting immediate results, and overestimating one’s individual power to produce and control are valued more than BEING. In this experiential workshop, participants are invited to explore the principles of evolutionary leadership and the implications for enduring social action. Through a combination of exercises and dialogue, participants will consider and make meaning of taking action from the heart center, acting boldly in the face of uncertainty, and surrendering the fruits of action, patience, and fierce compassion.

Trainer: Rose Sackey-Milligan, Contemplative Educator for Social Action
SERIES CLASS: This is a two-part series. Participants are expected to attend both Saturday sessions.

First Class, Saturday, December 8, 2018, 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM
Second Class, Saturday, December 15, 2018, 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM
