"The Magic of Co-Creation: Building Power in Groups" Workshop with Starhawk
From Cairo to Wall Street, all over the world people are coming together to create change, organizing without top-down leadership or hierarchies. In thousands of groups everywhere, people work together to create everything from community gardens to media to new ways of living. Such circles can be enormously creative and empowering, but they can also be cumbersome and frustrating. Yet when they work well, they liberate our imagination and change the world.

11059 Empowerment Manual

In her latest book, The Empowerment Manual, A Guide for Collaborative Groups, Starhawk draws on four decades of experience in circles and collectives to show us how to foster connection, clear communication and positive power in ourselves and our groups.

In this workshop, we will use the tools of magic, meditation, trance, and ritual to explore issues of personal and social power. We'll look at ways to create nurturing and healing group structures, to deal with difficult people and embrace constructive conflict. We'll raise and focus group energy to celebrate our connectedness and nurture resilient communities that can be joyful and effective agents of change.

Winter Solstice Ritual
After the workshop and a delicious organic meal, we will celebrate the longest night of the year with a Winter Solstice ritual and Spiral Dance led by Starhawk and Reclaiming LA. In support of those in recovery, this ritual is also drug and alcohol free. Please honor us and the sacred by keeping it so. All are welcome.
