Courage of Care launched in order to provide a community for educators, activists, leaders, healers, parents and others to develop the skills necessary to realise a more compassionate, just world. We designed a model that integrates relational contemplative training, critical pedagogy and systems thinking to support sustainable personal and social transformation. Our model helps us learn to: 1) LOVE in more sustainable and compassionate ways; 2) SEE that which inhibits our capacity to connect in just, equitable ways; 3) HEAL from collective forms of trauma and oppression; 4) ENVISION more caring and just worlds; and 5) ACT to realise and sustain our shared visions. In addition to providing workshops and retreats, we developed a university level course and have consulted with several University Centres interested in compassionate systems change. This workshop will offer participants an introduction to the core theory and practice of the model with opportunity for critical engagement.
