How many times have you silently thought to yourself, “I just don’t have the energy to do this anymore?” or “The way I/we are doing things just isn’t sustainable?” You are not alone, and there are ways to manage our emotions and stress levels and nourish/resource ourselves as we work toward the society we hope to create. Join certified meditation teacher and movement leader Reggie Hubbard to heartstorm ways we can individually and collectively shift self-destructive norms and change political culture to one that serves our needs as we serve others. This workshop is for anyone seeking ways to change their individual or organizational habits toward ones that are more sustainable and nourishing.
