[olympiaworkers] Embodied Activism:Unpacking Our Practice and Building Our Power Learning Series-starting Saturday September 18-Fall 2010 to Spring 2011

Hi Sisters and Brothers,

Let folks know about the Embodied Activism: Unpacking Our Practice and Building Our Power learning series. It's available as a session, the series, a one-day workshop, or a two day Activism and Wellness retreat.

As a former College Professor (Labour History, Political Action, Worker-focused courses), current Labour and Community Development Educator, and a strong union advocate, I have designed this learning series to critically engage folks interested in progressive social transformation.

Some amazing folks have taken courses/workshops and learning series with me, including amazing feminist, indigenous activist Jessica Yee; d'bi young- 2 time Dora Award winning actor, dubpoet, and scholar; HipHop artist Ian Kamau, and many more.

Description of learning series:
Coming this Fall 2010 until Spring 2011- Embodied Activism bring activists, frontline workers, management, entrepreneurs, advocates, and anyone seeking a space for critical self-reflection, professional and personal development together.

In the learning series, we will critically explore the methods and strategies of social change, social innovation, community/organizational engagement, and creative intervention.

We will look at the tools and actions used by activists, advocates, educators, workers, entrepreneurs, academics, and community members.

Participants will move through creative sensory, mind and body activities and mindful dialogues that draw on their lived experiences and resource materials to deepen their self-awareness, 'unpack' and transform their practice.

•Session 1- Unpacking Our Practice
•Session 2- Dealing with Difficult Conversations
•Session 3- Role of Allies
•Session 4- Creative Interventions
•Session 5- Self-Awareness & Self-Care

If you and/or your organization wants to take part in this community building and knowledge sharing learning series, please send a detailed email to Tomee at or Hirut at  We will work with you to bring the learning series to your organization, educational institution, and community.
