The Magic of Co-Creation: Building Power in Groups
WORKSHOP: Saturday, December 17 from noon–3:00pm
From Cairo to Wall Street, all over the world people are coming together to create change, organizing without top-down leadership or hierarchies. In thousands of groups everywhere, people work together to create everything from community gardens to media to new ways of living. Such circles can be enormously creative and empowering, but they can also be cumbersome and frustrating. Yet when they work well, they liberate our imagination and change the world.
In her latest book, The Empowerment Manual, A Guide for Collaborative Groups, Starhawk draws on four decades of experience in circles and collectives to show us how to foster connection, clear communication and positive power in ourselves and our groups.
In this workshop, she will use the tools of magic, meditation, trance, and ritual to explore issues of personal and social power. She'll look at ways to create nurturing and healing group structures, to deal with difficult people and embrace constructive conflict. She'll raise and focus group energy to celebrate our connectedness and nurture resilient communities that can be joyful and effective agents of change.
Meal & Winter Solstice Ritual and Spiral Dance follow, ending at 6:30pm
