With conflicts and disagreements rising within our communities, this seminar offers practical and creative ideas to help stand in the midst of polarized political views and cultural differences without sacrificing our sacred calling. Relying on the collective wisdom and experience of their creativity and imaginative spirit, participants will engage in creative process, role play, and circle time to demonstrate how to find each community’s sacred space in order to empower all voices. They will actively engage one another to unpack practical processes, weave stories together, and practice the art of listening and honoring the other in order to build strong communities of peace.
