Democracy & Advocacy Training: From a Science of Mind Point of View
Are you tired of hearing only extremist, divisive, or angry voices every time we face important, even life-threatening issues? Do you want to get involved, not just sign petitions? Do you want your views to make a difference, not just rant on social media? Are you unsure about how to make your voice heard where it matters?
If you want to make sure that a spiritually grounded, inclusive, and positive voice and vision are part of lifting our culture and shifting public policy, then this training is for you.
Practicing the Science of Mind means taking personal responsibility and this training shows us how to take responsibility for actualizing our Global Vision. We have so much to offer to the political, social justice, and cultural conversations. We know how create a vision and then speak for it. We know how to reveal unconscious beliefs and change old paradigms of thinking, we do it for ourselves every day.
Our spiritual imperative is to contribute our highest thoughts, words, and actions in service to a world that works for everyone. CSLDallas has prioritized being a Force for Good in the world. But we don’t always know how. Yes, individual and personal actions make a difference. Yes, causal work in the collective consciousness is key. But we also treat and move our feet. To change the narrative, to influence public policy, and to work to create a just, sustainable, and inclusive world, we must contribute our beliefs and our voice in a powerful and compelling way. We do this through effective Advocacy.
This training focuses on:
- How our democracy works at the local, state, and national levels
- Where and how public policy is made
- How public policy and public opinion is influenced
- What advocacy is
- Knowing why you want to become an advocate
- What to advocate for
- How to get in touch with representatives and change makers in your community
- How to join other advocacy groups and events
Advocacy is about communication and influencing, not fighting, debating, or being against. Advocacy is making sure that your voice – a sane spiritual, positive voice for a powerful vision and healthy future – is at the table. Advocacy is about knowing that your voice matters and making sure that your beliefs, grounded in a positive practical spirituality, are heard.
Facilitators: Dr Petra, Rev Patti Generes, and Practitioner Sherry Wood, RScP – all long time political activists from a spiritual perspective.Sign Up Here
