The tension between the opposite poles of despair and empowerment makes each experience possible. In other words, we can’t fully experience empowerment unless we also experience its shadow – despair. Inspired by the work of ecophilosopher Joanna Macy, we’ll look at the way despair and empowerment work together to facilitate each other into being.

In this sit, we’ll drop in and seek a comfortable exploration of a growing edge, the periphery of our understanding of something. Can we find that sweet spot, the place bridging the known and the unknown and empower ourselves through expanding our awareness? We will practice inviting a level of curiosity, closer proximity, and ‘oh’pening to our experiences (and their emotions) that we tend to distance ourselves from.
