    Start Date: November 16, 2020

    With “The Gift of Forgiveness”, we are welcoming back Deborah Briggs, instructor and author of one of the Charter’s most successful courses, Growing Whole, Not Old - Aging in the Pandemic Age (Formerly "Awakening the Sage Within"). In that course she introduced hundreds to the concept of Sage-ing®. During this workshop, we will delve into ‘forgiveness’: one of the core concepts of the Sage-ing® Movement. We will develop greater compassion for ourselves as we begin to free ourselves from the painful burdens we have carried.  This course provides us with the opportunity to live more fully once we learn that things we saw as negative can be transformed into the foundation for living more fully.

    Braiding Sweetgrass: November 24 at 7am PT

    By Robin Kimmerer

    In Braiding Sweetgrass, Kimmerer brings two lenses of knowing together (tools of science and indigenous wisdom) to reveal what it means to see humans as "the younger brothers of creation". As she explores these themes, she circles toward a central argument: The awakening of a wider ecological consciousness requires the acknowledgement and celebration of our reciprocal relationship with the world. Once we begin to listen for the languages of other beings, we can begin to understand the innumerable life-giving gifts the world provides us and learn to offer our thanks, our care, and our own gifts in return.

    Compassion Renaissance: A Celebration of Art and Activism

    December 2, 9am PT

    Ignite your fire with us as we celebrate and honor the 150th Anniversary of Julia Ward Howe's Original Mother's Day Proclamation! Julia’s 150-year-old Vision is a clear template of action for women’s sovereignty. As an artist, an activist, Visionary, and a Virago (a heroic feminine warrior), she knew that her Vigilant work would Vibrate into Voices beyond her lifetime to inspire and connect to women across generations. Be inspired and add your Voice and Vision with Six Visionary Voices of feminine artists illuminating Third-Eye-Vision: an awakening to clarity and the infusion of next-level consciousness into the ever-Vigil Vision for a Partnership into a Safe and Sacred Now.
