Service Description

It's time to find a new way to engage with the world around us, so that we don't become burnt out, overwhelmed or hopeless. This 8-week course has been designed as a collective for change makers, activists and all those in service of others. We will gather, as spiritual-warriors-in-training, to provide the support we need to change the world from the inside out. It is easy to blame others for the failure of global democracies, for the climate crisis and issues of social injustice, but we need to ensure that we are not perpetuating these in our own lives. The training is the opportunity for bringing our contemplative practices, such as mindfulness and compassion, into our engagement with the world around us. Ideally, you will already have completed the Mindfulness Based Living Course in order to have a solid foundation from which to take these practices into your life and work. Sessions: 1. A Purposeful Life 2. Practices for Change Makers 3. Qualities of the Contemplative Activist 4. Growing Circles of Safety 5. Types of Engagement 6. Challenges for Activists 7. Self Care and Resourcing 8. The Joy of Engagement Each meeting will include a time of meditation, sharing our successes and our struggles, and action steps for the way forward in our work. Material will be provided after each session, with notes and home practices. My wish is to encourage many self-supporting groups to develop throughout South Africa - and beyond - in order to strengthen change makers and activists in their challenge to stay strong, even when the road is very, very long.
