Starts on January 12 at 19:00-20:30 hrs. EST (New York)
Join us for these four weekly sessions, every Tuesday from Jan 12-Feb 2.
Spiritual communities open a space for personal growth, building trust and capacity for vulnerability. However this can sometimes lead to abuses of all types due to power imbalances.
How can we make our community safe?
Having expert information about this all-too-common phenomena will help us build a culture of trust and safety. It has happened in our community, we have faced the past and now we respond together.
Sex and the Spiritual Teacher by Scott Edelstein has helped many of us during this time. In the preface of the book the author states, “…this book offers practical analysis and action for individuals…solutions and strategies for spiritual communities. It’s a book of inquiry, awareness, and social and spiritual change”.
In this series we will discuss the book and read some passages from it, with a purpose to understand and come to terms with what has happened, and where to go from here, individually and as a community. Moving forward, what must both students and teachers do to make our relationships safe.
You don’t have to have read the book to join!
