RITUALS FOR THE MODERN ACTIVIST via Zoom
September 8 @ 3:00 pm - September 11 @ 6:00 pm$300 – $550
Co-taught by Suzanne Sterling, Michelle C. Johnson, and Susanna Barkataki
In this time of distancing and great changes in the ways that we build community, we need connective rituals more than ever. With commitment to engaged and embodied presence, we can absolutely do this online!
It is time for the collective to reconnect with self, community, the earth and Source. White supremacy and oppression have separated us from the earth, our inner knowing, one another, and Spirit. Remembering the ancient art of ritual or practices that reconnect can offer ways to heal ourselves and the collective. Co-creating rituals as part of our embodied activism can help us by grounding our justice work in a context of life affirming interdependence.
Coming from very different backgrounds, Michelle, Suzanne and Susanna each have many years of experience in facilitating ritual for different needs and communities. In this workshop they are dedicated to creating a container for deep remembering and acknowledging the political and cultural systems causing suffering for people and the planet. We will explore how to meet these times in a grounded and purposeful way through movement, meditation, discussion, song, and work with the sacred elements of life.
4 LIVE sessions- between 2-3 hours each day will include in depth discussion and community ritual You will also receive 3 unique yoga practices taught by each of the facilitators. These practices will be designed to support integration of the live discussions and rituals In addition you will receive 3 short ritual practices to implement at home and a comprehensive information packet to support the work.
