"Despair & Empowerment" Activist Burnout Workshop

Sunday afternoon, May 13, 2016  at Stony Point Center

There will be no charge, but to help cover the costs of the Stony Point Center, we are asking those who can to donate $10. 

Activists involved in peace, social justice and environmental work will be gathering on May 13 to take time for focusing on moving through the personal feelings involved in "fighting the good fight." Ecopsychotherapist Alan Levin will facilitate this event to help people move through their negative feelings of fear, despair, rage and numbness and open (again or for the first time) to their hope and empowered sense of agency in relating to the world. Despair and Empowerment work helps us stay attuned to our inner strength and purpose.

Due to the nature of the work, participation is limited to 20 people. To register, email Alan at alevin@sacredriverhealing.org or call 845-271-3623. We have scheduled the group from 1 - 5 PM to be sure we have enough time in a relaxed mode. Depending on how things go, it may end earlier. Meals are available at the Stony Point Center (lunch is $10 and dinner is $15) for those who would like to come earlier or stay afterwards.

Tuckahoe's Toxic Trench

A proposed Brownfield Development in Tuckahoe at the Old Marbledale Road Quarry Dump may cause toxic air emissions that pose a health threat to area residents. Residents of Bronxville and Eastchester should be concerned, as well as Tuckahoe residents, since the geology of the area will cause disturbed contaminants to flow in the groundwater beyond the Tuckahoe area.
