Keep On, Strong Heart

A Morning with Kathleen Dean Moore


Event Details


We may be tired, we may be discouraged, but the assaults on a just and sustainable planet keep coming, like birdshot to the face. In this workshop, we will collect our thoughts, confront our dismay, obliterate our obstacles, gather our courage, summon our communities, and reclaim our laughter and joy for the work ahead. The beginning lines of Libby Roderick’s song, “Keep On, Strong Heart,” will be our guide. Our fury may bring us to the task, but it’s our love for the world that will empower our voices in its defense. We can choose to be part of the great work of transformation. This workshop will lift up all varieties of the “active and engaged” – experienced, aspiring, or maybe just thinking they ought to get started. All those will find support and inspiration here.

Kathleen and Rachelle McCabe are also offering an evening performance on Friday, November 9: A Call to Life: Variations on a Theme of Extinction. 

Cancellations: No refunds for cancellations made 7 days or less before the event date. Prior to 7 days before an event, there is a $15 processing fee per ticket for cancellations.
