We are living in trying times. We at Courage of Care believe we have the capacity to respond to the enormous social, economic and environmental challenges before us from a radical stance of love and compassion. Many great teachers have pointed to the importance of deep spiritual work for sustainable social change. If we do not cultivate our capacity for compassion and care, we may end up recreating the very structures of oppression we wish to dismantle. Likewise, without a critical systems lens, spiritual practitioners may recreate patterns of oppression and othering that limit liberation for all. Our mission is to empower both personal and social transformation by providing deep contemplative training coupled with powerful tools for systemic change.
In this session, participants will engage with our blueprint for transformation – Love, See, Heal, Re-Envision and Act – through experiential practices that include envisioning the beloved community, receiving care and support, recognizing and challenging oppressive stances, undoing internalized oppression, and healing—for all people, wherever they fall in oppressor/oppressed dynamics.
