Civic Leadership Practice
Every Saturday, 8 – 9:30 a.m. by the steps of the Lincoln Memorial
Feel a sense of responsibility to make a better world?
We need leaders who can act with courage, wisdom, kindness, vision and integrity. Join us and become “the change we wish to see in the world.”
A “Bodhisattva” is a person devoted to developing the wisdom and compassion needed to act for the benefit of all. Create a community of practical idealists – of bodhisattvas – who support one another and develop our hearts, minds, bodies, and spirits to be the best leaders we can be — regardless of our formal position. Here’s what we’ll be doing:
- Run or walk around the Reflecting Pool. Go solo, pick a partner, or join a group for exercise and/or conversation. (Learn more on the value of exercise here.)
- Meditate, reflect, journal or pray. (Learn more about the value of solitude here.)
- Warm-down with yoga or light group exercises and share your reflections.
- OPTIONAL: Join us afterwards for Civic Canvassing at local farmers markets.
We must learn to live [and work] together as brothers [and sisters] or perish together as fools. – Dr. Martin Luther King
It’s going to take more than change in our political leaders and policies to fix what’s broken in the U.S. We need a change in our civic culture, and that starts with real leadership— even if starts with only a small number of people. Interested in participating? Sign up below:
