Social Entrepreneurship: From Spiritual Values to Effective Action Weekend of November 29-December 1 , 2013

$405.00 – $1,750.00 (based on accommodation type)

This workshop's start date has passed.

Workshop Details

Many of us long to do something that will have a positive impact on the world. We hold a vision of infusing our spiritual values into the life of our planet. We want to be social entrepreneurs.
This workshop offers the accumulated experience of Search for Common Ground, which grew out of meetings at Esalen in the 1980s into the world's largest non-profit organization in conflict transformation. The keys to Search’s success have been profound creativity, nimbleness, and an unswerving, compassionate vision, which is reflected in the range of their work: media projects reaching tens of millions of people, multiethnic kindergartens in the Balkans, a Common Ground News Service, and racial healing  in the US.
During this workshop, Search founder and president John Marks and senior vice president Susan Collin Marks will take you deep within to unfold and define your own vision. They will share the Principles of Social Entrepreneurship and offer individual coaching through a clinic that draws on their experience as well as the wisdom of the group. They will lead you through the possibilities that abound when you grasp your inner potential to make the difference you long to make, and the world needs, right now.
