Advanced Training: World Work From the Heart (1)
Time & Location
About The Event
How can we bring greater compassion into our work as we seek to transform our world into the one we want? Come to this 3-day session to learn how to increase your effectiveness as both an ally and a leader. We’ll focus on issues of rank, privilege, internalized and systemic oppression, grief, and forgiveness – as well as practice ‘sitting in the fire’ when in the presence of those with whom we disagree.
Through a combination of practices, we'll work to strengthen our ability to be a positive force in the world - with the courage, knowledge and humility needed to "take a stand." On each step of the journey, you’ll integrate more deeply the wisdom of mind, body and spirit in service of creating the world we long for. Join us in this laboratory for growth and connection.
This course is designed for those who want to pursue deeper skill development in the realm of work, community, large group interaction, and leadership. Emphasis is on bringing our practice into the world and working with others. A Compassionate Listening Intro Training (2 days) is a pre-requisite for this Advanced Intensive.
