Time and Date: Saturdays, March 3, 10 & 17, 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM in the Sanctuary
In this course we will be exploring the creative arts to promote personal and collective awareness, empowerment and healing. Using the modalities of art, music and dance/movement, we will immerse ourselves in guided explorations, improvisation, and discussion. The integration of these expressive art forms creates a synergy which helps to raise our personal and collective consciousness. Our explorations will be a combination of individual and group work. We will also examine how our intention can raise awareness on a more global scale.
Critical Response Theory
Facilitator: Phil Weaver-Stoesz
Time and Date: Saturdays, April 14, 21 & 28. 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM in Annex C
The Critical Response Process is a step-by-step process to give and receive feedback, embrace vulnerability and honesty, and dismantle defensiveness. The process teaches you to lean on the virtues of curiosity and open inquiry to facilitate difficult conversations, and can be applied to any “work-in-progress” – whether it’s an artistic goal, a relationship, or a personal area of growth. The 3-part course will teach us to transform discomfort into inquiry.
