Embodied Activism: Preparing ourselves and our communities for the coming changes

February 15, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

With Minister Sarah Thompson, Executive Director of Christian Peacemaker Teams
and Maggid Jonathan Furst, Spiritual Facilitator for Keneset HaLev

How can we become more effective organizers and peacemakers? Come learn & practice techniques to increase our abilities to embody our highest values in responding to this political-spiritual moment.

Drawing from modern and ancient activist wisdom, we will:

  • Reveal strategies of nonviolent direct action embedded in Hebrew & Christian
  • Examine our personal values, capacities and resources for creating positive change
  • Run scenarios to practice interrupting violence and dealing with haters
  • Embolden ourselves and each other as upstanders

This event aims to engage the body, enliven the heart, recognize grief, sharpen the mind,

relieve physical stress, and inspire!
