Listen to Mary Mackenzie discuss this ground-breaking course with Miki:

Ever since the Women's Movement of the 60s and 70s, we have known that "the personal is the political" – that individual suffering and challenges often have their source in the social systems within which we live.

How can we mobilize this insight in support of our own and others' healing?

This course is designed to shed light on how the social context into which we are born affects our experience, and what we can do about it at the individual level within the paradigm of nonviolence.

Course Outline

The course is comprised of three 90-min sessions held in the same week. The outline below is loose and may shift to adapt to needs, experiences, and situations as they arise in the course of our time together.
