Warrior for the Human Spirit

The Berkana Institute will be offering training to be a Warrior for the Human Spirit  in Crestone, Colorado beginning March 15, 2018. Registration for the program is open until November 1, 2017 when you would need to sign up for the three weeks of contemplation (they send you a question a week) and then you self-nominate by November 30th.

“Warriors for the Human Spirit are leaders, activists, and citizens who want to make a meaningful contribution in this time of increasing assaults on the human spirit and all life.

To serve well, to be effective with their energy and influence, they train with discipline and devotion to refrain from fear and aggression and to embody the best human qualities of generosity, insight and compassion. They are already skilled leaders and activists: they know how to create engaged and productive workplaces and healthy communities.

They know how to advocate for their causes and to work well in networks of diverse people. Yet their hard-won skills and valuable experiences are not enough in this darkening time. A different category of skills and capacities is needed so they can act wisely and well, persevere, and use their influence and power to offer sane, life-affirming responses even as threats to people and planet intensify.”

The Warrior Training provides a deep and essential basis for our ability to stay engaged as people who want to be of service for this time.  Those trained as warriors have a stable mind, clear perception and strong community; they are able to cope with strong emotions of grief, exhaustion, and anger, to source their work from internal reserves and from community, and to strengthen their commitment to be of service to the increasing numbers of people who are suffering.”

There is no other way to prepare oneself
for the difficulties, tragedies, and insanity
that will continue to escalate.
We can’t change this world,
but we can change ourselves
so that we can be of service to this world.
