How activists can unlock the transformative potential of negative emotions
Conference Center at U of Pitt-Johnstown
450 Schoolhouse Road
Open to attendees of the 2015 Vegetarian Summerfest conference, happening July 8-12. Exact date & time of this talk TBD.
Those working for justice and to protect the vulnerable have always struggled with grief, disillusionment, anger, and confusion. In our current era, even the strongest are stumbling under the burden of overwhelming crises playing out on a global scale. This empowerment workshop will show how these difficult experiences are inevitable rites of passage. If understood and addressed in a healthy manner, they open the door to personal transformation and increased effectiveness in our work for change. Inspiring examples will be drawn from the experiences of contemporary justice advocates as well as from the life stories of historically renowned social visionaries.
