Community Questions at the Eastside Bend Library: On Cultural Norms

Join us as we explore a question from the “Cultural Norms” section of the Stoke Your Woke Interactive Journal. This set of questions engages us to look closer at the status quo and “business as usual” habits we have. And helps us better understand how we are affected and influenced by dominant cultural ways of doing and being.

This is a free event, sponsored by the Deschutes Public Library. All materials needed to participate will be supplied. If you have a Stoke Your Woke Journal and would like to use it, by all means, bring it!

Money: Self and World Saturday Workshop

Money: Self and World Saturday Workshop

We live in a mixed message “money” world. As Americans many of us feel a lack of-- an “I don’t have enough money” even if we have significantly more than many people. And we’re also told if we simply believe in abundance, if, like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, we click our heels together, close our eyes and believe money is available to us we’ll have it, we will. Or if we just work harder. The meritocracy story. Let’s leave it with those for now.

With that, it is plain to see that we have a disconnect, and a ton of conditioning that has us dancing in scarcity or praying for abundance. During this 4 hr. workshop, we are simply, and perhaps profoundly, going to dip our toes into the shores of this topic and learn to navigate fresh water.

How does the “money” story live in you?

Join us as we ask evocative questions and prompts, mindfully and playfully engaging our four ways of knowing (sensing, feeling, thinking, and imagining), and discover something new together.

COST:
Your cup is FULL $99.00
Your cup is OVERFLOWING $139.00
Your cup is LOW $59.00

If you are unclear about where you fall and what to pay, we have outlined our thoughts below to begin our discussion even before we meet! Our fee structure is designed to change the model of “we all pay the same” and create clarity around why it is important to disrupt this norm. (Fee includes a copy of the Stoke Your Woke Interactive Journal.)

Your cup is FULL: You may own your home. You are salaried or you make over $35.00 an hour. If you are retired you have a pension or a solid retirement fund. You travel regularly long distances. You may have debt but that debt comes from choices in investing in yourself or family members.

Your cup is OVERFLOWING: You own more than one property. You likely have or will inherit family wealth. You can travel, eat out and hire others to take care of some of your needs. You have wealth and income. (retirement income counts)

Your cup is LOW: You live off of what you make. You may or may not have a three month savings for emergencies. You haven't accrued a lot of wealth. You are a single parent. You may not own a home. You have debt due to education, healthcare, family responsibilities etc.


Preregistration required. Space is limited to 10 participants! Grab a spot early.
No one turned away for lack of funds. Please contact us if you are interested.

These sessions will always center around a question that points us towards this bigger one: What would it be like to live in a culture that truly values and actively provides opportunities for inclusion? We’ll write, muse, share, consider, and wake up-- through questions and prompts from Stoke Your Woke Interactive Journal.

Thursdays: January 16, 23, 30th and February 6, 13, 20th

Belonging: Self & World Workshop

Belonging: Self & World Workshop

Click below to reserve your spot:



“A deep sense of love and belonging is an irreducible need of all people. We are biologically, cognitively, physically, and spiritually wired to love, to be loved, and to belong. When those needs are not met, we don't function as we were meant to. We break. We fall apart. We numb. We ache. We hurt others. We get sick.” --Brene Brown

This 4 hour weekend workshop will be multifaceted. We will be using the questions and prompts from Stoke Your Woke, body-based awareness practices, and movement to explore the evocative subject of belonging.

What does belonging mean to each of us? What are the cultural and social overlays?

You’ll be writing, sitting, lying, listening, moving, and sharing.
You’ll have aha moments, insights, connection, and fun.
You’ll get a taste of inter-connectivity, see some blind-spots, and touch your depth.

Payment includes a copy of the Stoke Your Woke Interactive Journal.
Small group. Space is limited. Pre-registration requested. Pay from the heart sliding-scale.
