Our times confront us with realities that are painful to witness, difficult to take in, confusing to understand. It is easy to forget that the birth of something new is often a struggle. We can despair, loose focus, clarity of vision, even the will to go on. Active hope is about finding and offering our best response to the many crises unfolding around us. It is a mindfulness based, heart centered practice that provides us with the skills and community to face our pain and despair, and by doing so transform them into renewed strength and purpose. In this experiential workshop, , you will experience a simple, yet profound four-part process you can use on your own to forge new focus, direction, balance, and equanimity in the days ahead.
