Upcoming Workshops & Trainings

TEDx: SEATTLEWOMEN – FEARLESS featuring Kathleen Macferran
November 19, 2020
Virtual Event

We are eager to invite you to the 2020 TEDxSeattleWomen virtual event on November 19, from 2-5 PM, Pacific Standard Time.

This year’s event will center on the theme of Fearless – an idea that is exceedingly important during this time of apart-ness and physical, cultural, and economic challenges. Now is the time to engage and call upon our collective fearlessness to take a global step forward together. On November 19, we will prioritize connection. With our community top of mind, the event will be complimentary. Don’t miss out on the chance to hear remarkable talks and live updates from our beloved speakers, watch stories of “Women Who Dare”, and interact in discussion forums.

BUILDING STRONG COMMUNITIES AS THE BACKBONE OF SOCIAL CHANGE
September 14-19, 2021
Location: France (between Lyon and Geneva)

During this gathering, our focus will be on actively strengthening the communities we belong to (families, neighborhoods, organizations, workplaces, schools, prisons, spiritual communities…) with the intention to attend to the well-being of all. We will explore what kind of world we want to live in and what systems support that world.
Together, we will explore:

  • What is our vision of how we want to live?
  • How do we create communities and organizations that thrive?
  • How do we recognize and support what is already working in our communities?
  • What is missing in our communities or what qualities do we want to strengthen to bring about more health, peace and collaboration?
  • How do we make our prisons houses of healing?

This workshop will be interactive, with every voice contributing to the collective learning as well as time for individual reflection and integration. The facilitation will support both structured inquiry as well as what is emerging from moment to moment.
