Katie Mansfield (the lead trainer for the Strategies for Trauma Awareness and Resilience (STAR) program within Eastern Mennonite University’s Center for Justice and Peacebuilding) defines resilience as healthy power in the midst of vulnerability and uncertainty. In this hour, she’ll invite us to consider what’s happening these days (in the world and in ourselves – particularly nervous systems). What practices are we engaging as individuals to locate and deepen our resilience? Who is in our resilience network? What does it mean to build community resilience? Participants will be invited into some self-reflection/journaling and short story-telling in breakout groups.
