Module 19 – Mindful Activism

(Pracha Hutanuwatr and ALT Team)

In a world facing multiple challenges and threats at social, environmental, and spiritual levels, it is more important than ever to act and create change both from within as well as around us. Acknowledging that inner and outer work are connected, this module proposes a holistic approach to activism which simultaneously encompasses both self-transformation and social transformation.

During the 5 days we will we will learn how to not insulate ourselves from the pain of the world but rather understand and embrace it in order to become the medicine that heals the world, and to help us maintain coherent, healthy and sustainable activist mindsets in line with our vision. At the same time we will explore practical tools like planning a campaign, using power mapping, organising non-violent direct action, and making use of social media.
