Spirited Social Change started off as a monthly meal and dialogue in East Vancouver, exploring the intersection of ‘spirituality’ and social change. You can read some of the feedback from the first two dinners here and here.
Over the course of Fall 2012 we convened a collection of local folks to do some planning around providing resources and support for activists looking to develop better practices of self care. Those conversations turned into the Self Care Project.
In 2012/3 we hosted a handful of speakers and dialogues around intersections of spirituality, faith, and social change. We also started thinking more seriously about the climate crisis, and what roles people and communities of faith can play in stepping up to the challenge. Inspired by the fossil fuel divestment movement, we started talking about faith-based divestment. More to come on that.
And we are in conversation about incubating a myriad of other projects.
