Herscovitch, Lara Workshop - Waging Love: Finding & Amplifying Your Voice for a Better World Life Skills- Other,
Music,
Other
(Women Waging Love: same workshop with female-only participants) The many challenges of our world can feel overwhelming. Every one of us has knowledge and skills that can help build healthier communities, but we don’t always know where to start or how to plug in. This engaging, interactive workshop is like a visit to an artistic and inspiring civic engagement coach. It is designed for people who want to build a personal road map in a safe, respectful space with some guidance and in connection with others. Through individual writing and reflection, compelling exercises, group discussion, and live and recorded music, we will cover: individual values, priorities and hopes; debunking the myths of a perfect solution and single charismatic leader; accepting, carrying and passing on a torch; letting one’s heart lead (not one’s ego); allowing for the messiness of collaboration; appreciating common threads as well as differences; and specific strategies and places to wage love in the civic arena. Step in, step up: we are the leaders we’ve been waiting for.
