Service and Activism

 My activism pays the rent on being alive and being here on the planet. If I weren’t active politically, I would feel as if I were sitting back eating at the banquet without washing the dishes or preparing the food.           —Alice Walker

 
The foundational restorative practices of mindfulness, nature-based practices, and relationship skills soften the boundaries between ourselves and others – other people, other species, and the earth itself. This expanded sense of self and interrelatedness leads to a natural desire to give back to the world in some way.
 
Through the self-awareness and confidence developed through restorative practices we are in a position to be of real service to others and our communities. We can offer our time and energy in a way that is more about giving and less about getting some personal benefit or hoped for result. This type of service contributes to our psychological and spiritual health.
 
Activism is a form of service that focuses on fundamental system change. The Colorado Center For Restorative Practices has developed Restorative Activism as a pathway for activists interested in sustainable and effective nonviolent social change.

We offer coaching and workshops that can help you connect with meaning and purpose through service and activism.
