GRRRLs with HEART (GwH) is an autobiographical writing and performance program for girls: (ages 12-18) to write thoughts into monologues, dances, and songs for public performance.

GwH invites teenage girls to explode with HEART beyond the limits that society wants to place on them. During the program, the GRRRLs explore their innermost selves, learn Nonviolent Communication, and are introduced to strong adult women who model the power of living authentic lives and pursuing your dreams.

Active Peace Workshop

Sat, 11/12/2016 - 9:30am - 12:30pm

Please join Scott Brown for a 3-hour workshop on creating a culture of peace. This workshop is experiential and goes to the root of the core challenge we face of healing the belief in separateness.  

This workshop will:

Increase your Self-Awareness;

Deepen your connection to Nature;

Strengthen your Relationships; and

Expand your capacities as a Peacemaker.

The workshop is based on Scott’s book, Active Peace: A Mindful Path to a Nonviolent World, and his stop in the Washington DC area is part of a 50-city book tour.

Connecting Across Political Differences

Sat, 09/17/2016 - 10:00am - 4:00pm

Let’s set aside a day together to practice “on our feet” using our awareness of universal needs and interdependence during this Fall election season. This workshop will focus on growing our skills for the compassionate integrity we long for: maintaining empathic self-connection and presence—no matter what; hearing the “yes” in every “no”; transforming enemy images; and practicing the “post-hearsals” that help us be prepared for the next challenge.
