In light of recent national and local level political events, emotions and tensions are running high.
In partnership with the Ignite Institute at Pacific School of Religion, Impact Hub Berkeley would like to convene the impact community to decompress, heal, and meditate so that we may replenish our minds, bodies, and spirits to work towards positive social change: whatever that may look like.
Impact Hub Berkeley is a community space to imagine and implement positive social change. Ignite Institute at Pacific School of Religion is helping to create a world where everyone can flourish. They do this by educating and training spiritually-rooted changemakers and anchoring a network of faith communities, social justice organizations, and activists working towards a more just world.
You are invited to participate in a rejuvenating evening on Wednesday, November 16th, 2016 from 6-8pm. We ask that you come with open arms, ears, and a much needed spirit of tenderness.
