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.

Five Foundations

  • Spirituality as the Source of Freedom and Courage (Spiritual Maturity)

  • Mindfulness (Psychological/Emotional Maturity)

  • Nature-Based Practices (Ecological Maturity)

  • Interpersonal Skills and Tools (Relational Maturity)

  • A Restorative, Healing Approach to Activism (Maturity in Action)

Benefits

  • Greater self-acceptance and compassion for others

  • Increased capacity to be in the stillness out of which wise action arises

  • More intimate connection with nature

  • Heightened ability to transform conflict
