Spiritual Activism Circle
Dec 28, 1:00 PM

Exploring Spiritual Activism: A Monthly Transformative Learning Circle!

Occupy Chaplains Seattle and Interfaith Community Sanctuary invite you to explore the intersection of activism and spirituality - how to keep from burning out, how to bring our personal realization to benefit the world, how to be the community of change we wish to see. 

More about "Exploring Spiritual Activism...

inspire_me_mandalas_Magnificent.jpgWe’re in the middle of an evolutionary shift in consciousness that will lead us to a new society and we are facing the biggest ecological changes in human history that threaten to eliminate civilization. 2013 was proclaimed “a year of activism and protest in the Seattle area.” How do we navigate the waters of change and assist in turning the tide toward a more just and compassionate world for all living creatures? In 2014, the Interfaith Community Sanctuary and Occupy Chaplains invite you to explore the dynamics of Spiritual Activism.

Gathering as a transformative learning community, all participants will share knowledge and experience, staying open to mystery and inspiration. We are all learning together, creating a field of discovery in which wisdom can emerge. Through a wide array of learning and unlearning modalities, we hope to enrich our understanding, transform our experience, and seed new actions in our lives.

Each month we will explore one of the Principles of Spiritual Activism as delineated by Will Keepin, Cynthia Brix, and the Satyana Institute.
