Mindful Activism Workshop Peace Day Philly
September 20 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Supported by the Ethical Society, the Church of the Holy Trinity, and the Philadelphia Rotary Club – offers a workshop on “Mindful Activism” with Annalisa Castaldo, a Zen Buddhist priest and Associate Professor of English at Widener University, and Hugh Taft-Morales, Leader of the Philadelphia Ethical Society. This free event will take place in the nave of the Church of the Holy Trinity, 1904 Walnut St. Enter the main doors of the Rittenhouse Square entrance. Come explore how to nurture compassion for oneself and others through disciplined but simple mindfulness practice. These techniques can improve our ability to stay calm and caring in the middle of tense political talk or public protest. We will discuss: how to engage with the world but retain a sense of inner peace; how to deal with social and political conflict in a healthy and mindful way; and how to be an activist who remains compassionate and doesn’t burn out.
