Rolling Ridge Retreat and Conference Center is organizing a weekend Peace Conference, “Speaking out, Listening Deep: Spiritual Grounding for Political Action” on Saturday & Sunday, July 22 & 23, with keynote speaker Robert A. Jonas. Margaret will lead a workshop, "Spiritual resistance in a time of crisis" on Sunday afternoon at 1:00 p.m. and again at 2:15 p.m. In our effort to build a better future, how do we avoid getting burned out or overwhelmed? How do we address our anger, fear, and grief? What spiritual practices can sustain our efforts to renew the web of life and to create a more just society? This workshop will explore a framework for the heart to help us become healers filled with compassion, energy, and hope.
Since its inception in 2011, the Peace Conference at Rolling Ridge has served as an important platform for healthy dialogue and inspirational hope. Diverse speakers over the years have addressed issues of peace-making, Earth tending, and inter-faith reverence. In a confusing political and social climate, now more than ever, people need a safe space as we seek understanding, harmony, and change. This year, Rolling Ridge will address the topic of peace in the political process at our 7th annual Peace Conference. During the Saturday afternoon plenary, Dr. Robert Jonas, will focus on the inner work that needs to be done so that we may be faithful to our call to speak out against political, social, and racial injustices. Sunday afternoon workshops will feature training in mobilization and spiritual practices, with experienced faith leaders offering their insights. A closing interfaith prayer for peace will round out the conference and send people home inspired and equipped to work for peace. For more information and to register, visit here.
