Politics, Social Healing, and the Body
Pre-Festival Offering
Thursday July 9, 2020
9 am – 5 pm

cost: $59.00


When we use the term “politics,” we don’t mean how you vote; we mean your behavior and how you use your power in the world. How are you using (or not using) your power?
In a world with divisive, polarizing and harm-producing politics, we need new ways to think through politics and advocate for social healing, more holistic ways of relating with one another, and to cultivate practices that help us act justly.
This pre-festival offering will explore the work of Activist Theology; how can you get your hands dirty in today’s world? How can you work for culture shift from a place of organizing, faith and values?
This work requires the integration of the whole self, and of whole communities. Parts of this work will be participatory and seek to engage body, mind, and heart through learning to honestly narrate our stories, building empathy, and moving our bodies together to experience the kinds of radical connections that midwife social change.
