Extinction Rebellion meets March 7
MIDDLEBURY — Living in these divisive and tumultuous times fills many with passion and energy to work toward the life-nourishing and just world that we want for ourselves, all beings and future generations.
Life also tests our mettle and can be draining and enraging.
How do regular folks work with the fear, anger, hope and other strong emotions that roil them? How do we move toward positive visioning and co-creating?
The group Extinction Rebellion Champlain Valley will host a seminar called “Heartstrong Activist Workshop for Changemakers” on Saturday, March 7. The workshop will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Champlain Valley Unitarian Universalist Society at 2 Duane Court in Middlebury.
The Work That Reconnects, developed over the past 40 years by Joanna Macy and many colleagues, provides time-tested personal and group practices to help empower us. Gratitude, honoring our pain, seeing with new eyes, and resolving to go forth with intention tap into universal wisdoms and instill in us new energies for creativity and collaboration. Extinction Rebellion members ask that people join them for a heartfelt day.
If you wish to contribute, $10 donations accepted to cover minimal costs and contribute to the food shelf, or bring a food donation.
Bring a lunch. Beverages and snacks provided.
