SHINE YOUR FIERCE LIGHT

A WORKSHOP WITH VELCROW RIPPER

”Inspiring and Energizing.”~Leslie Hayman

This fierce workshop with spiritual activist and award winning filmmaker Velcrow Ripper explores the power that is released when spirituality is combined with action. Gandhi called it "Soul Force," Thich Nhat Hahn calls it “Love in Action;” for Ripper it is "Fierce Light.” It is the power of the sacred warrior, heart centered and fierce at the same time. Featuring dynamic "engaged spirituality" practices and meditations, visualizations and exercises, the workshop will offer key tools to unleash your own "Fierce Light" and take action from a spiritual perspective.

“A wonderfully engaging, thought provoking and spiritually uplifting workshop. We are going to turn the world around through these kinds of happenings all over the globe. ”
~ Angel Hamilton, participant

Learn how to integrate the head and the heart, "doing" and "being," compassion and action, in order to be of the highest service both to yourself, and the world around you. Join thousands of spiritual warriors around the world, and become part of "The Great Turning," helping to make the shift from the industrial growth society, to the life sustaining civilization. A holistic journey of integration, from the personal, to the global, from the inner to the outer and back again. Discover your own Fierce Light, and let it loose on the world.

“Inspiring! Intertwines many teachings, insights, exercises and experiences to create something unique and beautiful.” ~ Rebekah Hart, participant

In this workshop you will:
~ expand your sense of self from the Ego Centric to the World Centric and Kosmocentric view.
~ learn to transform conflict through “love in action”.
~ explore the integration of mind, body, spirit and shadow.
~ transform your relationship to this era of crisis into a time of tremendous opportunity and awakening, while avoiding overwhelm and burn out.
~ deepen your sense of interconnection with humanity and the planet.
~ develop a concrete action plan to manifest your own “Fierce Dream”

“A truly inspiring and affirming experience. I often feel scared to fully express myself as a conscious, evolving individual. The openness and compassion you brought to the workshop created amazing room to explore and express with complete freedom. A week later, I am still glowing with the impact. I know this experience will be one I carry close to my heart for a long time. I feel empowered with very tangible tools to carry forward on my journey.”
~Beth Warian, participant

believe the director, Velcrow Ripper, had this quote from Gandhi in mind when he started this project, “I cannot teach you violence, as I do not myself believe in it. I can only teach you not to bow your heads before any one even at the cost of your life.”
Gandhi the power of love and determination
