Moral Praxis: Action and Reflection

This workshop engages the development of personal and collective ethics, particularly in the framework of praxis and “conscientization.” Through practice of transforming conflict, rebalancing power dynamics, academic and experiential investigation of strategic nonviolent resistance, and multiple reflective practices in the natural environment, participants find their spiritual equilibrium in the interdependencies of the world and deepen their understanding of the relationship of action and reflection.
