This workshop is an opening to gain more understanding of what hate is all about, so that we can be present to it and with it, in order to heal it. This is an invitation to join an interactive exploratory conversation to tap into our own experiences and share wisdom about the medicine for hate. The workshop is born out of conversation with CNVC trainer Kit Miller, Director of the Gandhi Institute of Nonviolence in Rochester New York, and a deep longing I have to show up for the pain I and others are experiencing right now in our community.More Details OR View additional offerings - past and present.
“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
