"re-examine all you have been told in school or church or in any book, and dismiss whatever insults your own soul; and your very flesh shall be a great poem, and have the richest fluency, not only in its words, but in the silent lines of its lips and face, and between the lashes of your eyes, and in every motion and joint of your body.” Whitman Practices for deeper self understanding and caring for your whole well being.

Do you struggle with school discipline, school to prison pipeline, conflict in the work place, or do you want to increase awareness about your own sense of what justice is? In every relationship we have, we react and respond to conflict ways that increase or deescalate tensions. What if we establish agreed ways of dealing with tensions, or responding in ways that create more connection and growth? We will spend a day learning about and experiencing restorative practices. Join us.
Sat-Sun Sept 30 - Oct 1, 2017 9:00AM-5:00PM | Trainers: Pam Orbach and Andrea Brenneke | Location: St. Marks Cathedral, Capital Hill, Seattle, WA
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It's not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
These few words are enough.
If not these words, this breath.
If not this breath, this sitting here.
This opening to the life
we have refused
again and again
