Join us for “An evening of song and spoken word, celebrating we the people, exploring the power of the broken open heart, and imagining how we might live as people of healing and hope”. We will be viewing a 60 minute video presentation based on a book by Parker Palmer titled “Healing the Heart of Democracy“. The video features words spoken by Parker Palmer, and songs and music by Carrie Newcomer and Gary Walters. The video will be followed by a 30 minute discussion period. The goal is for people to go home “with spirits renewed by life giving words and music, and then we can find ways, small and large, to renew our citizenship with whatever encouragement we take from this time together”, Parker J. Palmer is an author, educator, and activist who focuses on issues in education, community, leadership, spirituality and social change. He is the founder and Senior Partner of the Center for Courage & Renewal, while Carrie Newcomer and Gary Walters are musicians known across the United States as well as in many parts of the World. Our hope is that the video will lead to a longer more in depth examination and discussion of the book.
