Problem –> Solution Orientation

JOIN US TO TAKE POSITIVE INITIATIVE TO TRANSFORM OUR PROBLEM MINDSETS INTO A SOLUTION MINDSET. THE WORLD IS FULL OF BAD NEWS AND WE CAN BECOME OVERWHELMED WITH THIS OPPRESSIVE FORCE AND BECOME DIS-EMPOWERED, PESSIMISTIC, OR EVEN DEPRESSED AND DISENGAGED.

Polarizing Perspectives

THIS COMMUNITY-BUILDING EVENT IS INSPIRED BY THE ‘WORKING ACROSS DIFFERENCES’ COURSE IN THE RED RIVER PROGRAM I GRADUATED FROM. OUR COURSEBOOK WAS ‘BECOMING AN ALLY’ BY ANNE BISHOP WHICH I HIGHLY RECOMMEND FOR DEVELOPING A HEALED AND COOPERATIVE MINDSET. MUCH NEEDED IN THIS INCREASINGLY DIVIDED WORLD.

WE DEAL WITH MANY POLARIZING PERSPECTIVES ON VARIOUS CURRENT AFFAIRS LOCALLY AND GLOBALLY. NO ONE CAN HAVE THE EXACT SAME OPINION, NOR CAN WE HAVE ANY SUCCESS IF WE ARE UNWILLING TO BEING OPEN TO UNDERSTANDING ANOTHER’S POINT OF VIEW. THIS ACTIVITY WILL CYCLE THROUGH CURRENT TOPICS WHICH WILL BE DETAILED ON THE CALENDAR OF EVENTS. THE OVERALL GOAL IS TO BEGIN TO NEUTRALIZE OUR RIGID AND CONFLICTING PATTERNS WHICH FOSTER SEPARATION AND CAN LEAD TO SERIOUS CHALLENGES AND EVEN VIOLENCE. By donation*

MUSIC, ART, AND WORKSHOPS* ~~~ October 31st – November 1st.

Sacred Economics

A WORKSHOP SESSION THAT IS BASED ON THE BOOK BY CHARLES EISENSTEIN WHICH “REVEALS THE RETURN OF THE GIFT; HOW THE MONEY SYSTEM HAS CONTRIBUTED TO ALIENATION, COMPETITION, AND SCARCITY, DESTROYED COMMUNITY, AND NECESSITATED ENDLESS GROWTH. TODAY THESE TRENDS ARE COLLAPSING AND WE CAN FIND GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO TRANSITION TO A MORE CONNECTED, ECOLOGICAL, AND SUSTAINABLE WAY OF BEING”

YEWTOPIA IS ALIGNED WITH THE PRINCIPLES OF COMMUNITY ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AND THIS WORKSHOP WILL BE A ‘VALUABLE’ LESSON ON SACREDNESS IN ALL PARTS OF OUR LIVES, BUT SPECIFICALLY OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH MONEY. By Donation*

Screenings and Debriefs

WATCHING MOVIES OR SERIES WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY IS MUCH MORE ENJOYABLE WHEN WE CAN SHARE THE FUN EXPERIENCE AND TALK ABOUT ALL THE JUICY DETAILS.
