Watering the Seeds of Inspiration - Month 6, Week 4 with Seane Corn, Hala Khouri, & Suzanne Sterling
December 13 - 17, 2021
During our last week together we will support you to create your own pathway for action. We will explore the Block/Build/Be framework as a way of fleshing out the vision for your next steps and explore ways to network and support each others visions, becoming each other’s “creative consultants”.
This is a chance to reflect on and integrate the journey of the past few months, and commit to meaningful action ahead so that the seeds of inspiration from this training can flourish.
This week's sessions will include:
- Monday Lecture: Mapping next Steps for Meaningful Engagement | 2 - 3:15pm pdt | 5 - 6:15pm edt
- Wednesday Practice: Building Rituals of Connection and Commitment | 9 - 10:15am pdt | 12 - 1:15pm edt
- Friday Meditation: Weaving the World | 9 - 10am pdt | 12 - 1pm edt
100% of your contribution to this course helps to support and sustain our network of community leaders, activists, our ongoing scholarship program, and our greater OTM community worldwide who are at the frontlines of change for our collective wellbeing. We greatly appreciate your support!
For your reference: Each week will consist of 3 (three) independent online offerings that will tie into one another and take you on a full experiential journey. The arc and content of this training has been very carefully designed, in deep collaboration with an incredible list of community leaders, activist, and educators.
At OTM, we are committed to accessibility and cultivating diversity in our community and trainings. If you would like to request a discounted rate, please email [email protected] and answer the following questions:
