Our vision in creating Globalicious Gatherings is to build community locally among people who are connected globally in support of the transformation we all hope to see. This work is challenging, and for our visions to be realized it helps to connect with, encourage and support each other in our efforts. This is a space just for that, and for you! We hope to create a little global village here in what can feel like a big Bay Area.
global spirits rising
2013 Theme: Sustaining Ourselves
How can I be the best advocate for a community that is close to my heart?
How can we incorporate more transformational ways of working into our grassroots globalpartnerships?
How can we include self-care in our work for social change?
What might be possible if we came together in a sustained, heartfelt way across projects to support each other in our journeys?
Inspired by these questions, we invite you to join us to
co-create ongoing community for global spirit journeyers
When: Bimonthly starting Monday, January 28th,6 – 8:30 pm (March 25th, May 11th, July 8th, etc..)
What to expect:
Facilitated activities that balance the left and right brain, draw on our values and passions, and dig deeper into our hearts’ desire for justice, compassion, and peace
Food to nurture our bodies, our minds, and our hearts and a relaxed vibe
Opportunities to meet like-minded women and men to create a, supportive, engaged community together.
As longtime grassroots activists on global issues, we noticed that most gatherings were centered around specific projects, and there were not spaces to support our journeys to make a globaldifference. We started by hosting a series of dialogues last summer called “Tapestries of Solidarity.” (See video here.) We had such a positive response that we decided to experiment with an ongoing space for gathering and growing this community of amazing people here in the Bay. We welcome your ideas and participation.
2013 preliminary host group: Melanie Bielefeld, Katherine Zavala, Gwyn Kirk, Laura Livoti, Mary Jane Marcus, Mari Pearlman and more. We welcome your participation in planning or facilitating an exercise one evening too. Just let us know.
