These times call for bravery. During the symposium, Shambhala Center will explore the tradition of warriorship, a tradition that responds to the world with courage, compassion, and wisdom as it offers a path beyond hope and fear. Through warriorship one can return to center when they feel overwhelmed and generate action that has the power to heal and enliven as it reconnects people with themselves, others and the natural world.
Building on last year’s symposium, Living Beyond Hope and Fear: Social Confidence and Climate Change, this year’s event will provide participants with a sense of community and inspiration for the work ahead and opportunities to engage.
The weekend will include talks by co-leaders Marty Janowitz and Sahar Alsahlani, an interfaith panel discussion led by Reverend Fletcher Harper, entertainment by master storyteller Odds Bodkins, breakout sessions, informal conversation and ample locally grown food. [Organizer's description]
