Educational Goals:

  1. This workshop will examine mental health constructs and ethics practices related to tension, inequality, balance, and privilege.
  2. The goal of the day will be to apply embodied intelligence for transformation of disconnected, fear-based thinking and behaviors into respectful life choices in the spirit of communal living.
  3. Practical exploration, using transformative learning theory, will examine intergroup conflict, disenfranchisement, authenticity, civility, and disagreement.
  4. Participants will assess and discuss means of facilitating individual wholeness in personal, relational, and communal living, based on the fundamental notion that belonging to each other cannot be denied, but it can be lost.
