Nov 9, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

gift economy, see registration for information

In these times of exponential climate disruption, social injustice, and corporate power, we are challenged to re-imagine our personal and collective capacities for hope, resilience, and work for justice.

In this workshop, we will explore our emotional responses, our personal and collective wisdom, our fortitude and intentions for the work ahead, and our capacity for gratitude and other spiritual practices to ground ourselves for the journey.

Barbara Ford has been an activist, therapist, facilitator, singer, and artist with over thirty years of experience working with individuals and groups, including faith groups, activists, intentional communities, non-profits, and schools. Skilled in working with groups with creativity, empathy, and humor, she often incorporates ritual, music, movement, and other creative activities to deepen the workshop experience. She has worked closely with eco-philosopher Joanna Macy, and offers workshops, classes, and webinars which explore the convergence of spirit, creativity, and the engaged life.
