Hope as a Practice

Can hope be more powerful than simple optimism? What does it mean to ‘practice hope’? How do we maintain hope when things seem to be getting worse rather than better? In this workshop, we’ll explore different perspectives on hope and think about how they speak to us as Quakers. Participants will also have the opportunity to try out practices that can strengthen hope. We’ll reflect together on how to generate and renew hope to strengthen our collective capacity to bear witness in the world.

This course will draw on the work of Joanna Macy and Chris Johnstone and David Gee and participants will work on their own story of hope.

This one day course comprises of two two hour live sessions (usually morning and afternoon) with time for reading in between.
