Beyond Against: Activism from the Eye of the Storm
Friday, June 2, 3:00 pm – Sunday, June 4 3:00 pm, 2017
Canyonland Field Institute's Field Camp (outside of Moab, Utah)
Join us for a weekend of exploring the soul of activism . . . a workshop retreat for activists and blossoming activists from many areas and perspectives. Come make new connections — to self, to community, and to the power & wisdom found in the natural world.
Beyond Against is time to rest, regroup, re-imagine and empower your work with a diverse group of equally passionate folks in deeply shared community; to prevent burnout and tend to feelings of overwhelm or despair.
Beyond Against is an opportunity for members of organizations to connect with one another in the space of the desert and with the support of skilled facilitation and connection to nature. Learn more.
Beyond Against is for people looking for inspiration and direction around “what to do” to and to connect with groups that are doing the work on the front lines. Learn more.
In this workshop retreat, you will have the opportunity to be transformed and renewed, find a new sense of ground, open to fresh perspectives, hear & share tools for building bridges between people who hold opposing positions, and gather joyous momentum for the long haul — to stand tall in the Eye of the Storm.

Christi Strickland is a group coach and organizational trainer living in the Uncompahgre Valley of Colorado. Her life-long question has been: "what, truly, helps groups and organizations to thrive?" She is guided by the earth and the magic created in community, as well as her 20 years experience as an educator, facilitator, grief counselor, and wilderness rites of passage guide. She is also dedicated to anti-oppression through examining her own privilege as white, able bodied, US born, cisgender, along with combating oppression on interpersonal, internal, and institutional levels. Christi's facilitation style is oriented towards health, potential, and possibility, while not by-passing the shadowy and painful parts of it all. She loves the San Juan Mountains, seeds, flowers, waterfalls, good salsa, well placed lawn chairs, poetic run-on sentences, and is a student of dreams. firstname.lastname@example.org
