Are you keen to find sustaining ways to engage with life's challenges? Are you interested in the parallel paths of personal and social transformation? You will need to commit to an individual practice of 30 minutes per day, and a 75 minute group session per week. The ten sessions in this course cover contemplative practices, engagement challenges and shadow integration work. You will look at new ways to engage with the world around you, so that you don't become burnt out, overwhelmed or hopeless. This 10-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. Sessions: 1. A Call to Stillness 2. A Life of Purpose 3. Our Indestructible Essence 4. The Activist Archetype 5. Enlightened Self Interest 6. Circles of Safety 7. Ways to Engage 8. Challenges for Changemakers 9. Self Care and Resourcing 10. Joy as Insurrection Each meeting will include a time of meditation, sharing our successes and our struggles, and action steps for the way forward in our work. The cost of the course depends on your ability to pay. A sliding scale of R800 - R1600 is recommended, and includes facilitation, reading material and audio practices. Image: Shamsia Hassani
