Film and Discussion: The Occupation of the American Mind
7 pm, Madison Central Library, 201 W. Mifflin Street, Madison
Jewish Voice for Peace-Madison presents a showing of the film The Occupation of the American Mind. Co-sponsored by Madison-Rafah Sister City Project and American Friends Service Committee of Madison. Free and open to the public.  The Occupation of the American Mind provides a sweeping analysis of Israel’s decades-long battle for the hearts, minds, and tax dollars of the American people — a battle that has only intensified over the past few years in the face of widening international condemnation of Israel’s increasingly right-wing policies. (Trailer and Website here) For details and updates check Jewish Voice for Peace Madison.

5 “Habits of the Heart” for Personal & Political Wellbeing Online Workshop — Led by author, Parker Palmer

If I am not for myself, who is for me? If I am only for myself, what am I? If not now, when? – Hillel the Elder

Many of us are committed to ongoing personal growth, but not in a way that makes us self-centered and self-absorbed. We are equally committed to the common good. We know that a life well-lived includes caring for self and caring about the needs of others.  In this workshop we’ll revisit the old adage, “The personal is political.” We’ll focus on developing five habits of the heart that enhance our own wellbeing and our capacity to help create a world that works for everyone. The five habits are:

1. An understanding that we are all in this together
2. An appreciation of the value of “otherness.”
3. An ability to hold tension in life-giving ways.
4. A sense of personal voice and agency.
5. A capacity to create community.

Dates & Timing: You can watch workshop videos and participate online at any time that fits your schedule. Virtual Meetings will be coordinated by Cojourneo staff. We will do our best to accommodate a variety of meeting preferences and timezones.Creating Your Own Circle: If you’d like to create your own private small group for your organization, colleagues or friends, please email as at help@cojourneo.com and we’ll be happy to help you coordinate.
