Advocating within systems of oppression can be exhausting and frustrating. It often requires us to move out of our comfort zones to work respectfully and creatively with people whose perspectives are very different from our own. This is not easy.
Whether you are a current activist looking for different ways of doing and sustaining your work, a former activist interested in reinvigorating and re-engaging, or new to activism, this workshop will help you critically reflect on and improve efforts for social justice. To be able to stick with difficult work for the long haul, we need to do it in ways that feed our hearts and spirits and take the time to align our actions with our intentions. Oftentimes unconscious obstacles within us get in our own way. In order to ?lead who we are? it?s important that we renew rather than deplete, inspire rather than overwhelm, and build connections with others rather than alienate.
Using a powerful interactive approach called ?Overcoming Your Immunity to Change? developed by Kegan & Lahey, you will identify changes you want to make in yourself and begin to uncover and free yourself from hidden obstacles that will lead to growth in your activism.
You Can Expect To...
Leave refreshed, renewed, and recommitted to your work for social justice;
Understand and develop skills in talking about complex issues in ways that build, rather than strain, relationships;
Identify changes you want to make in yourself, uncover unconscious internal barriers and create a plan for overcoming them;
Feel connected to a supportive community that can help you grow in the future.
