Have you experienced challenges working in collaborative groups and teams� even when you all have the best intentions?
When we seek to transform ourselves and our world, the groups we form and the communities they generate can be places of deep support, nurturing, and empowerment... but they often face unique challenges as well. So often we come together full of enthusiasm, only to founder on the rocks of conflict and poor communication.
Join us for a Free Webinar on Empowerment Through Collaboration: How to Create Transformation Community with Starhawk on Friday June 21, 5:00 - 6:30 pm PST; 8:00 - 9:30 EST.
Drawing on insights from her latest book, The Empowerment Manual: A Guide for Collaborative Groups, we will discuss ways of how we learn to work together more skillfully and become even more effective agents of change.
Learn how to make your participation in groups, in all of its aspects, an expression of your highest ideals.
Space is limited, so please register and arrive early to hold your spot.
