Title: Starhawk: Holding Power

Date: Monday March 1, 2010
Time: 2:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Notes: Starhawk: Holding Power Well

Monday, March 1st 2010
Milwaukee, Wisconsin, address TBA

What are the patterns of power that we don't see?
How do we find the source of our true power from within?
What blocks us from being empowered, effective, courageous people?
We will consider power within sacred space, and through ritual, trance, drumming, song, movement, and energy work develop the tools we need to transform destructive patterns into energies freed for change.

Workshop: Holding Power Well
Monday, March 1st, 2pm-5pm
This workshop explores issues of power and leadership. How do we take our power and own it as a life-giving force? How do we recognize when we do have power, and use it in ways that empower others? How do we nurture and support leadership in our groups, while also holding our leaders accountable?

This is a workshop for anyone who has struggled with these issues in relationships or groups. All of us have internalized models of power as domination, which often interfere when we attempt to form new structures based on power-from-within. Will you step into your own power?

Open Public Ritual
Monday, March 1st 6:30pm-9pm
Join us in for an open ritual to celebrate the season of the returning light. Will you hold the vision of your own light and step into your personal power? What is your relationship to power with your self, your community, and the world around you? Will you heal your relationship to power with Self, Community, and the Earth?This ritual will be offered in the ecstatic, inclusive style of Reclaiming and is open to participants of any tradition. Doors will open at 6:30pm with ritual beginning at 7:30 pm.

Registration is on a sliding scale. Please pay what you can afford, no one will be turned away. Pre-registering helps the organizers tremendously to know how many people to expect.
