Gatherings: Living Life Fully in a Crisis-Filled World

This class is for you if you find yourself feeling exhausted, overwhelmed, and sometimes despairing even as you paradoxically experience moments of joy, belonging, and a greater resolve to do your work.
2013-04-06
from 10:00 to 12:00

Dates: There are 4 Saturday classes in this series. April 6, May 11, June 1 and July 20, 2013

Cost: $80

Description: The intent of the four meetings of each Gatherings class is to come together as a group to explore, study, and apply the teachings in Margaret Wheatley’s book, So Far From Home: Lost and Found in our Brave New World. In her book, Wheatley explains “what is so” about our crisis-filled world and suggests how to live in such a world in a way that denies nothing and is psychologically and spiritually sound.  She describes specific uncomfortable truths that have emerged in our country over time and explains how we can respond to them from the perspective of compassion and insight. Wheatley writes that, “as warriors for the human spirit, we discover our right work, work that we know is ours to do no matter what.”

This class is for you if you find yourself feeling exhausted, overwhelmed, and sometimes despairing even as you paradoxically experience moments of joy, belonging, and a greater resolve to do your work.

A Tibetan Buddhist, Margaret Wheatley is well known in the leadership, learning organization, and systems thinking world.

Requirements: Participants can enroll in either the Wednesday Class OR the Saturday Class.  To support the coherence and support of each class, participants should anticipate attending all four Gatherings of the class in which they enroll.
