Training for the Long Haul, May 16, 23 & 30, 2017

Facing the Mess We're In Without Going Crazy

Three Tuesdays: May 16, 23 & 30 at 7:00 pm in UUFG's Common Room

Drawing on the work of Dr. Joanna Macy, this training will help you look at your deepest feelings about what is happening to our world, and renew your personal power in safe, supportive, and creative space. Whether you are a long-time activist or have never engaged in social/political change before, this three-part training will help you:

  • Redefine the context for the conditions we face and reframe the goals for effecting change in our lives and in the world.
  • Determine how to follow your own sense of rightness about where and how you feel called to act.
  • Learn how to tap your innate capabilities for effective, sustained action.

You still have the opportunity to register for the three-part training, to take place from 7-9 pm on Tuesdays, May 16, 23 and 30. Participants must commit to all three sessions.
