“I come every week because it’s the only place I can go to receive a breathing practice, and I come for the community that I really value.” TH

“I like the idea of community also. Especially with the virus and having to stay at home, I realize I’ve felt the need to connect with people. I love the idea of the consciousness, the awareness, and the emphasis on nature. That’s important to me.” DP

“I always wanted to learn more about meditation and I’m grateful for the opportunity to come and learn. I’m getting a lot out of it. I can tell that my ability to deal with circumstances is getting better about certain things.” AM

“There are not many places I can go and have this type of conversation and feel comfortable.” JG

“I come to meditation because it’s like my weekly reset. Even when things get busy and flustered and whatever, if I come here and I do it, it’s like a brand new start to my week and I feel better. It’s my must.” CJ

“I feel like I have friends here even though I’ve never met most of the others in person.” JB

“I’m here because this is such a perfect little sangha that we have going on Sunday mornings. I meditate a couple of times a day, but this is something special because every week it’s something different and very rewarding to do.” DB

Description

So many people long to join the movement to nurture the environment, increase social justice, and spread harmony throughout our community. The Visionary Activist Program lets you imagine what you can do, through your innate gifts, to take actions that will make a vital difference. Through a guided meditation and journaling, you will begin to conceptualize your vision and develop the tools to address it in ways you hadn’t imagined before. You will explore methods for your personal resilience and wellbeing, because the more nourished you are, the more you’ll have to offer to your vision. This workshop will guide you through the introductory steps to bring forth whatever is bubbling up from your heart in a way that feels joyous, supported, and uplifting.

Join us to…

  • Answer the question, “What is yours to do?”
  • Recognize the gifts that you are able to give to others in ways that will support you to remain grounded and stable.
  • Visualize future action steps through imaginative storytelling and simple-to-follow guidelines.
This program is offered in collaboration with Central Exchange, Kansas City’s Community for Leading Women, now in a strategic agreement with the UMKC Bloch School of Management.
