“Building Emotional and Spiritual Resilience”
In the face of converging social and ecological crises, how do we maintain courage and hope? What spiritual practices and perspectives sustain us as we struggle to protect the web of life and to create a more just society? Through a mix of presentations and small group conversations, this morning retreat will explore a framework for the heart to help us become compassionate, prophetic leaders who are willing and able to take up the mantle of moral leadership that this decisive moment in history requires.
