Reminder: “Hope as a Practice” Workshop

A reminder that registration for this “Hope as a Practice” workshop closes March 12!

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 two “Hope as a Practice” online workshops, held on March 19 and April 2, 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.

Registration for ‘Hope as a Practice’ is now open.

“Hope as a Practice” has been taught across the United Kingdom by Woodbrooke Quaker Study Centre tutor Tracey Martin. It is for individuals wanting to strengthen their relationship to hope in a world filled with challenges, or to explore hopes for our Quaker community. It is brought to you by CYM’s Education & Outreach Committee, who are focussing on offering restorative Quaker practices in 2022.
