A Foundation of Wholeness: 6-Week Work That Reconnects Full Spiral Workshop
Apr 7 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm PDT
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Thursday, repeating until Apr 7, 2022
This series meets weekly for 2-hours on Thursdays, over a 6-week period.
March 3 – April 7 @ 10am PST / 1pm EST / 6pm GMT / 7pm CET
The challenges of these times are very real. How do we navigate the emotional upheaval that so often accompanies the grief, anger, and despair we feel in response to what’s happening in the world? Sadly, most of us were not offered the skills to navigate our emotions. We were taught to repress our ‘negative’ emotions and be happy. But ‘happy’ doesn’t always reflect what we feel inside. Suppressing our emotions can have negative impacts on our well-being, our health, our relationships, and even our livelihood.
The Work That Reconnects invites us to take a fresh look at what we see happening in the world around us. It beckons us to recognize and embrace the entirety of our truth, to form a foundation of gratitude upon which we can thrive. As we move through the phases of the Spiral of the Work–Gratitude, Honoring Our Pain for the World, Seeing with New Eyes, and Going Forth–we remember the value of our emotional landscape. By identifying our unique contribution to the world and connecting with our inner resources, we build our resilience which supports us in navigating these chaotic times of great possibility.
This workshop will be limited to 15 participants.
This workshop is co-held as a collaboration between WTR Facilitator, Frieda Nixdorf and Madalyn Loustalot, Extinction Rebellion Global Support Trainings team facilitator.
These workshops are available on a gift economy basis, without the expectation or requirement of money coming to us. In this way, we are participating in re-seeding the flow of generosity in the world instead of continuing to uphold the exchange economy.
We are inviting you to ask yourself whether you too would like to step into this flow. It would be impossible to truly quantify the amount of labor that has gone into creating this offering, nor would we want to ask for money in exchange for that labor.
Rather than an acknowledgement of work put in, we ask: do you have a willingness to contribute money to us? This would mean that Frieda and Madalyn are able to sustainably offer more places and spaces in support of The Great Turning. We recognize this can be an unusual and challenging request for many people. For that reason, if you just want ease, an amount between $150–220 USD is requested as an amount that we trust would support our sustainability sufficiently over time.
Please consider your needs and ours, any amount given will support Frieda and Madalyn’s sustainability and connect with Frieda regarding your intentions. Or simply contribute via PayPal at paypal.me/FriedaNixdorf or via Venmo at Frieda-Nixdorf.
The languaging around the framing and invitation to the gift economy is from Miki Kashtan of Nonviolent Global Liberation.
