Re-Imagining the Practice of Social Justice: Bringing Head, Heart, and Hands to Our Work

Location: Holyoke Public Library, 250 Chestnut Street, Holyoke, MA
Trainer: Rose Sackey-Milligan

The influence of the dominant culture in the U.S. on social justice activism and organizing often goes unnoticed. In our culture, busyness, mind over heart, getting immediate results, and overestimating one’s individual power to produce and control are valued more than Being. In this experiential workshop, participants are invited to explore the principles of evolutionary leadership and the implication for enduring social action. Through a combination of exercises and dialogue, participants will consider and make meaning of taking action from the heart center, acting boldly in the face of uncertainty, and surrendering the fruits of action, patience, and fierce compassion.
