Week 3
Sunday, July 24 – Saturday July 30, 2016

The Politics of the Open-Hearted:
Climate Change and Courage
with Mardi Tindal and Dan Hines 
Mardi Tindal and Dan Hines will host an exploration of politics and possibility, heartbreak and hope, grief, faith and courage in a time of global warming and climate change.
Our ‘blessed unrest’ includes informed, soulful and loving resistance to society and politics as it is. When our hearts break open, worthy questions arise for a better world: What is our personal healing work within the larger communal effort? How will we sustain our activism and together build community?
We will focus on interlocking habits of the heart: deeply invigorating patterns of receiving, interpreting, and responding with hope, in light of our experience. These habits involve our intellects, emotions, self-images, and concepts of meaning and purpose.
We will engage in dialogues focused on evocative texts and questions, experience silence, solitude and journaling for reflection, and tell stories from our own lives. These practices - and habits of the heart - are informed by the work of Parker J. Palmer and the Center for Courage and Renewal.
Course fee: $310
