"Keep on Strong Heart" at Black Mountain Circle, Mesa Refuge, Point Reyes, CA.
We may be tired, we may be discouraged, but the assaults on a just and sustainable planet keep coming, like birdshot to the face. In this workshop, we will collect our thoughts, confront our dismay, obliterate our obstacles, gather our courage, summon our communities, and reclaim our laughter and joy (!) for the work ahead. The beginning lines of Libby Roderick’s song, “Keep On, Strong Heart,” will be our guide. Our fury may bring us to the task, but it’s our love for the world that will empower our voices in its defense. The workshop is to lift up all varieties of the “active and engaged” – experienced, aspiring, or maybe just thinking they ought to get started. All those will find support and inspiration here.
