Learn how to connect the sacred teaching of your faith with your social action education and activities. Deepen your students' understanding and connection to the Divine. Share lesson plans and ideas. Receive coaching.
 
We will explore these questions:
  • What nourishes our souls and the souls of students as we engage in social change work?
  • What role can the sacred texts of our traditions play in social action?
  • What calls to our students? How can we encourage them to listen to the Divine and to heal in relation to our broken world?
  • How can we empower our students to take action?
  • How can we assist them (and ourselves) to overcome discouragement, despair and hopelessness?
  • Whose lives inspire us? How can we share that with our students?
  • How do we teach the intersection of various oppressions?
  • How do we build sacred change-making classrooms?
  • How do we model and teach non-violence as a spiritual practice?
