Core Conversation #2: CULTIVATE

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In the absence of justice, those who believe in freedom cannot rest. But paradoxically, without rest—and spiritual sustenance—our movements can suffer from corrosive cynicism. When many of us exist in a perpetual state of fear, anxiety, and moral outrage, how do we avoid becoming well-intentioned but disillusioned activists? How do we nurture hope that is stronger than the winds that shake us? In this Core Conversation, we will discuss how to be leaders who cultivate spiritual resilience—not only for ourselves, but for all.
