SAN FRANCISCO, CA: Collective Stewardship of Liberation Pathways
HMD/The Bridge Project
Collective Stewardship of Liberation Pathways
Saturday AUGUST 14, 1PM - 3PM (PDT)
TICKETS: $20 - $75 sliding scale for individuals / $75 - $200, sliding scale for organizations
Collective Stewardship of Liberation Pathways is a workshop that asks us to examine what we bring and how we engage each other as we work together in various formations toward liberation. Community agreements, philosophical manifestos, mission and equity statements are intended to provide common value-based grounding for liberation work. What do we do when there is a misalignment between beliefs and actions? People engaged in various forms of social justice and artistic pursuits are invited to investigate how the presence or absence of espoused principles show up in our individual bodies and groups and try on various alignment approaches.
The session will include breathwork, journaling and physical movement. No formal dance experience is necessary.
