Active Peace Webinar
Courage, Healing and Effective Action
A Seven-Week Plunge into Peacemaking with G. SCOTT BROWN, author of Active Peace: A Mindful Path to a Nonviolent World
Wednesday Nights / 6 – 8 pm MST
October 4, 2017 through November 15, 2017
MOVE BEYOND REACTION AND ADDRESS THE ROOT CAUSE OF OUR COLLECTIVE CRISIS!
CULTIVATE THE INNER FREEDOM TO LEAD WITH CLARITY AND AN OPEN HEART!
LEARN HOW TO BRING PEACE AND JUSTICE TO THE MOST CHALLENGING ISSUES!
Friends, we have a profound opportunity to participate in the healing of our world.
To be most effective, activism must address the root cause of our collective crisis—the belief in separateness, the belief that we as humans are separate from each other, from the earth and others species, and from our spiritual essence as human beings. This is where every war starts—it’s there in our negative self-talk and snap judgments of other people, and it carries forward to the degradation of the Earth, the extinction of species, and every military intervention.
BECOME A FORCE FOR TRANSFORMATIONAL SOCIAL CHANGE!
By offering both a conceptual and experiential framework, this training offers a way forward out of the fear that paralyzes and the anger that limits effectiveness.
