PeoplesHub Workshop – Connect online as an individual

Resilience and Restoration in 2022

 

We live in a culture that values productivity over our wellbeing. We live in a culture that reproduces injustice and demands we give it all until we are burned out and depleted. The last two years have shown us that we must imagine another way to live, because we are our movements, and if we are not well, our movements and communities suffer.

 

As we welcome in the new year, Joe and Jardana offer PeoplesHub’s third annual new year’s workshop. In this workshop, we will explore two of PeoplesHub’s 4 Rs, Resilience and Restoration. We will focus on why resilience and restoration are necessary for thriving and healthy movements and learn from resilience and restorative practices in order to support our visioning for the world we want and need, and resource our work to bring that vision to life.
