“…in dire need of creative extremists” | (2018) January 13: Intro to TRE, February 9: An Evening w/ John Hall

2694622249_040ae7c00eThe question is not whether we will be extremists, but what kind of extremists we will be…
The nation and the world are in dire need of creative extremists.
 – Martin Luther King Jr.

Hi everyone,

Just how severe and life-threatening do life circumstances have to be for someone to choose to jump into a small overcrowded raft to cross a turbulent, unforgiving ocean because it looks like the better option? How many make this choice and do they survive? What happens when they do?

Last summer, John Hall, Director of the International Law Program at Chapman University, spent his ‘vacation’ volunteering on the Greek island, Lesvos, helping the many desperate people arriving in rafts to reach safety.

I know John to be a man of great knowledge, experience and wisdom. Beyond that he is a pleasure to be with, full of warmth, and an engaging, heartfelt story-teller. I am very excited that we have created an opportunity for him to tell us about his experiences last summer, plus, help us understand more about what is creating the desperation and what can be done to alleviate it.

Please join us for “An Evening with John Hall: Kindness Amid Chaos, Stories from Lesvos” — Friday, February 9, 7:00pm – 9:00pm.

Also, we have just a few more spaces for:
Intro to Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE®): Connection, Compassion & Community, Saturday, January 13, 6:00pm – 9:00pm
FREE ADMISSION | VEGAN REFRESHMENTS | DETAILS & REGISTRATION. (All are welcome: first-timers and those who have already learned.)

This year, Living Ubuntu will operate according to a ‘gift economy’ as much as possible, offering free admission whenever we can.
If you value our work and have the means and inclination to financially contribute, please do, recognizing that others might not be able to.

We are grateful for your generosity.

In the spirit of Ubuntu,
Barbara English, LMFT, CBT, TRE® Certification Trainer
