Spiritual activist and award-winning filmmaker Velcrow Ripper (Occupy Love, Fierce Light, Scared Sacred) and special guest presenter Judy Rebick lead this workshop that explores the power that is released when spirituality is combined with action. Gandhi called it “Soul Force,” Thich Nhat Hahn calls it “Love in Action;” for Ripper it is “Fierce Love.” It is the power of the sacred warrior, heart centered and fierce at the same time. Featuring dynamic engaged spirituality practices and meditations, visualizations and exercises, the workshop will offer participants key tools to become catalysts of transformation.
Velcrow Ripper and Judy Rebick will lead participants on a holistic journey of integration, from the personal, to the global, from the inner to the outer and back again. Learn to transform this era of crisis into a time of tremendous opportunity and awakening, while avoiding overwhelm and burn out. Learn how to integrate the head and the heart, doing and being, compassion and action, in order to be of the highest service both to yourself, and the world around you. Help make the shift from an industrial growth society to a life sustaining civilization.
