Meditation for Social Change - Feb. 27 -

Everyone who works in the service of social change knows the feeling of competition between personal growth and social action. The value and demands of our work can make it feel selfish to take care of ourselves, and develop our own capacity for reflection and personal resilience. The practice of meditation is rooted in the idea that there is continuity between how we work with our own minds and how we engage in the world. When we relate to ourselves with aggression and speed, we inevitably carry that aggression into our work and frustrate our social goals. Meditation helps to develop personal strength, which in turn allows us to engage in the world with compassion, empathy, and inspiration.

Who: For anyone engaged in changemaking and needing some respite and time for self-care

Where: Loyola House, Ignatius Jesuit Centre, 5420 Ontario 6, Guelph, ON N1H 6J2

When: February 27

When: 8:00am - 4:00pm

Cost: $80.49 if you come alone, $64.49 if you bring a friend

To Register: Visit the Eventbrite Page

In this workshop we will explore the relationship between taking care of oneself and engaging wholeheartedly with the world. This one day workshop will consist of mindfulness meditation, contemplative practices of self-reflection and generating compassion, and conversation about how to bring these practices and themes into our daily personal lives and work environments.

Great for food co-ops, not-for-profits, social enterprises, collectives, social change activists, intrapreneurs, and anyone making waves in their field. Register today (bring a buddy for the discounted rate)!

If you have already registered for the 5th Annual Assembly of the Local Organic Food Co-ops Network, this will be the perfect conclusion to a stimulating week of connections and skill sharing, and a wonderful way to help you wind down and reflect before returning home to your co-operative work or development.
