Event description

Description

The Mindful Resistance series focuses on the aspect of self-care, resilience and compassion as it relates to effective and sustainable social activism. The series will feature a monthly panel discussion and culminate in a half-day self-care retreat at a TBD location in Miami Beach.

Date: Sunday, February 25th / Time: 5 PM – 6:30 PM / Workshop: Learning to Love our Enemy

Drawing on ancient spiritual wisdom, modern psychology, and the latest neuroscience, this panel discussion will explore how to deal with troublesome people and situations, how we can overcome the real source of our distress and addressing our deep-seated self-centeredness and self-hatred. Panelists will offer practical methods for transforming our relationship to our outer and inner enemies.

Date: Sunday, March 25th / Time: 5 PM – 6:30 PM / Workshop: Self-Care for Political Activists

Description: Attendees will be provided with practical tools to carry them into the 2018/2020 election WITHOUT experiencing burnout by a panel of health and wellness practitioners and mindfulness researchers.Panel will address the “psychology of deprivation” among feminist activists who, while doing largely unpaid work, slowly evolve into exhaustion and eventual burnout. In order to continue to propel this movement forward and bring about change, this workshop for self-care is one attempt to reject an unhealthy model that has been internalized: that it’s necessary to sacrifice our well-being in order to make change.

Date: Sunday, April 8th / Time: 5 PM – 6:30 PM / Workshop: Raising Socially-Conscious Sons and Daughters

In an age of discontent, this panel discussion explores and raises parents’ awareness of how we see the world and people in it and how parents unconsciously pass off their biases to their children. Child psychologists, mindfulness teachers and other experts will provide tips and tools that can help revolutionize the way we raise our children. Topics covered will include: how to start the conversation; how to answer your children’s questions to eliminate the “awkward pause” and moments of fear or doubt; how to support your child’s learning around this topic; how to create a safe space for your children to talk about all the things that keep up us silent and separate from the people we perceive to be different.
