If you look back, do you recall your growing concerns of economic security, global warming and police violence, brewing for years before being catapulted full speed ahead by the 2016 presidential election? We can’t go back: there’s no there there.
It’s a time of both daunting crises and profound opportunities for change; we must tip the balance toward the best ways forward. The ways we can come to understand this threshold and engage with it well are also the building blocks of an education for our future: the study of how we collectively become.
We Tip the Balance prepares new seekers of social change to work in concert with those who have different stakes and lots of experience. Through the process, participants reconnect to their own histories, to the environment of which they are a part, to community, and to their own beliefs, values and sense of self. We ask questions about what we are collectively learning about social change. We learn more about how to make our caring count.
If you’re wondering more than ever where we’re headed and how to participate in building the world you want to live in, We Tip the Balance is a way to build a wide lens for understanding where we are and how got here, locate yourself in that picture, learn about that location, and develop a strategic plan for how to be a more effective change maker. Build the world anew by evolving your worldview.
We acquire information, tools and skills for tipping the balance toward the best way forward with our families, neighborhoods, workplaces, organizations and institutions. The time is now.
Participants who are committed to finding ways to take social action will be able to:
- Make more effective and valuable contributions
- Know about the history, methods and current state of social change efforts
- Engage in more meaningful connections with others
- Live life more fully from aspirations for our collective well-being
We Tip the Balance may be for you if you are:
- Committed to creating a culture of individual and collective well-being
- Eager to experience more connection and ability to take responsibility in the world
- Not afraid to understand and transform the ways your actions or history might be implicated in the problems we face
