LISTENING TO ORLANDO: FREE TELE-GATHERINGS
Call 712-432-0375, PIN 1029243#  LISTENING TO ORLANDO FOR LGBTQI
July 20 & 27, 2016 from 8:00pm – 9:30pm ET & August 2 & 9, 2016 from 10:30am – 12pm ET

LISTENING TO ORLANDO FOR ALLIES OF LGBTQI July 30, 2016 from 10:30am – 12pm ET & August 11, 2016 from 8:00pm – 9:30pm ET  Facilitators:  Lauren Spiro and Rita Cronise
We are fortunate to be alive at this time and to be able to come together in a safe and respectful space. As we undergo a major shift in our culture ending the oppression of LGBTQI is an important part of the struggle to transform of society.
The purpose of the sessions are to get un-numb by giving people a space to have a voice, speak from their heart, be heard, validated and respected. The gatherings also provide a safe and compassionate space which serves as a contradiction to the harshness of the world we live in.
“Orlando reminded me just how vulnerable we remain as a community. With all of our recent accomplishments, we are still openly vulnerable to those who want to do us harm. May we stay strong, united, and vigilant.”—Iden Campbell McCollum
“Forty-nine individuals were celebrating the beauty of their lives when they were brutally murdered. Their deaths are a call for truth, reconciliation, forgiveness, peace, and the development of inclusive next steps that advance the safety and respect for everyone that are so desperately needed in our communities today.”—Lauren Spiro

Three Free Dialogues of Discovery to Share Our Collective Wisdom: Think, Listen and Share
Join me for three free* teleconference Dialogues of Discovery to explore, investigate and discover together: meaning and purpose, who were you born to be, who do you want to be, who you already are and how to embody that peaceful being, shining your light, creating inclusive communities, and other topics which participants bring forward.
All three free* teleconferences are the 4th Tuesday of the month: 3pm-4:30pm ET/ 2pm–3:30pm CT/ 1pm–2:30pm MT/ 12pm–1:30pm PT. No reservations needed. Let’s keep it simple.
Dialogue 1: – Who are you? Who were you born to be?
Together we will investigate who we are beneath our mask, our roles and our attachments.

3pm – 4:30pm ET/ 2pm – 3:30pm CT/ 1pm – 2:30pm MT/ 12pm – 1:30pm PT

Dialogue 2: – What is the relationship between our emotions and our soul?
Another way to ask this question is what is our essence and how do we express that essence? In preparation for this topic it may be useful to ponder:
  • Are emotions a pathway to the soul?
  • What is the relationship between our essence, hearing voices and the divine?

“The CooperRiis community was honored to host Lauren Spiro at the Asheville campus on July 30th.  As Lauren talked about her recent book, Living for Two, she shared her personal story of resilience and healing in such a powerful, authentic, and heart felt way that many of us were moved to tears. This is a beautiful book about the power of love and the power of transcending pain and darkness that can exist both within oneself and in the world around us. What a courageous and precious gift that Lauren shares with all of us!”
