Share Cultivate Optimism - Writing Workshop with Bonafide Rojas

Event Details

How do we find hope in tragedy?

How do we find hope in personal struggle?

How can I think of beautiful things when everything around me is crumbling?

The way we cultivate optimism is the way we are stronger in these situations, so how we think about community in these parameters? 

How we think about the decisions in our lives? what's really important

In this workshop, we're going to discuss these important tools of self-preservation on how to cultivate optimism in the time of systematic apathy & disaster. There will be questions, answers, free writing & time to share the work.
