Sun, Mar 11 2012 9am to 4pm
291 W 8th Ave · Cost: 25

Important: Daylight savings time is in effect on March 11.

Join Charles Eisenstein acclaimed author, teacher and speaker for a day-long intensive workshop to explore activism in a time of profound transition.

In this workshop you will realize a new level of confidence, commitment, and effectiveness in what you are already doing -- an approach that doesn't depend on trying harder, but is a natural evolution.  http://unifyingcascadia.eventbrite.com/ to register. 

This daylong event is a hands-on exploration of becoming more effective as change agents. It is also about reuniting the long-sundered realms of the activist and the spiritual practitioner.

This workshop will explore:
• The psychodynamics of transition
• The shift of consciousness and mythology underlying the transition today
• How to align ourselves with that shift on a personal, psychological, and spiritual level
• The rebirth of community
• Activism in an age of social and ecological healing
• A Leader as “one who holds the story of what is to be”

Visit http://unifyingcascadia.eventbrite.com/ to register. Space is limited and will likely sell out.

In keeping with gift principles, cost is self determined. A $25 registration deposit is required. At the conclusion of the workshop, you will be welcomed to give more according to your level of ability and gratitude, or your deposit may be refunded in whole or part if you wish. You must attend the full workshop to be eligible for a refund. Pre-registration is required. Lunch and snacks will be provided.
