Event Details

Do you want to help make the world a better place but get overwhelmed by how much there is to do?  Do you want to do more in the world but you're not sure where to start?  Are you looking for ways to deepen the work you're doing now?  Based on the powerful work of author and teacher, Joanna Macy, PhD, this four-part series offers courage and capacity-building activities intended to develop and focus our abilities to create positive change in the world.  

Our first session introduces a new framework for understanding and facing challenges both bravely and gently; this framework will guide our other 3 sessions (named respectively:  Three Perspectives, Honoring Our Pain, Seeing With New Eyes). 

DATES:  Thursday evening, Feb 9, 7:30-8:30

Tuesday evenings, Feb 21st and 28th, March 7, 7-9 

Register through Fairport Library after Jan 12 at 9 a.m.  space is limited (20).  Register early.

Facilitators will be Gwen Olton, MA, BSN, RN and Padme Livingsone, BS, Rochester Pachamama Facilitator
