"Deep Resilience: From Me to We - An Intimate Communal Exploration" with Rebecca Blanco

  • Carnegie Hall, Room 06 90 South Macalester Street Saint Paul, MN, 55105 United States (map)

This interactive and experiential workshop focuses on the inner transition, “the changes we need to make within ourselves to transition to the more caring, equitable, beautiful, sustainable and resilient world...” (Transition Network).

Discover internal ingenuity and power to cultivate resilience and invigorate our healthier responses to the challenges facing us. Investigate how your own deep resilience can foster well-being in your community. Throughout the day, we’ll weave in practices that involve self-reflection, helpful unlearning, contemplation, conversation, and more, in order to blossom as trailblazers and game-changers in ways that can be sustained over time.

Rebecca Blanco

During the last four decades, Rebecca Blanco has served as a psychotherapist, presented an array of personal growth workshops, and completed a Masters and a Doctorate. Feeling concerned about the severe challenges we are facing, Rebecca delved into eco-psychology and deep ecology, perspectives that enable us to understand the interconnections between ecological-social-psychological forces and the manner in which these reveal the complexity of our planetary crisis. Rebecca participated in numerous programs/trainings, including the Transition Trainer Course, Permaculture Design Course, consultations with eco-psychology instructor Andy Fisher, Ph.D., Animas Valley Institute's wilderness-based programs, The Work That Reconnects, and an Awakening the Dreamer Facilitator Training. As the founder/chairperson of The Bridge, a community-oriented organization designed to explore paradigm-shifting ideas, Rebecca has organized over 100 educational events. She is full-heartedly dedicated to facilitating workshops that support eco-centered personal transformation.
