3-DAY RETREAT: Spiritual Activism
January 13 @ 8:00 pm - January 16 @ 4:00 pmFree
The Dalai Lama, Nelson Mandela, and Martin Luther King are revolutionaries who sought justice through peace. A peaceful warrior is an inspiring leader: this retreat is designed to empower individuals engaged in social justice to create non-violent change in the world with the aid of mind and body spiritual practices.
The weekend’s programming will focus on helping activists develop skills in meditation and mindfulness, while they self-heal and cultivate clarity, wisdom and compassion.
“Without deep abiding practices of self care there can be no radical social transformation,” Angela Davis.
