Living in Balance:
A Mindful Guide for Thriving in Complex Times

Wednesday, Oct. 29
2:00 – 4:00 pm
Room 100
Antioch University Seattle

As our world grows increasingly more complex and stressful, developing our capacity for dynamic balance in our lives, work, and relationships becomes more and more vital. Based on the ancient wisdom traditions, contemporary neuroscience research, and the insights of indigenous cultures throughout our world, Joel and Michelle Levey show that, in each moment, we have the capacity to be mindful of whether our thoughts and actions are moving toward harmony and balance or away from it. Through this awareness we can make a conscious choice to continue on the path we are on or to change our attitude and direction.

The session, opened to the entire AUS community, will be followed by Q & A in which Joel and Michelle will explore themes, draw from their experiences in sharing this work widely through their work, and explore implications for us in our own lives, work, professional development, service, and relationships.

Joel and Michelle Levey are internationally recognized speakers, authors, educators, and consultants. Founders of WisdomAtWork.com, the enduring benefits of their pioneering work in mind fitness, change resilience, collective intelligence and innovation have inspired leaders in hundreds of organizations around the globe including: Google, NASA, Intel, Hewlett Packard, M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, Microsoft, World Bank, Washington Athletic Club, NOAA, MIT, SportsMind, SRI International, Forest Ethics, EarthSave, U.S. Surgeon General’s Office, U.S. Special Forces, The Art Monastery Project, and The Clinton Global Initiative. Faculty at University of Minnesota’s Center for Spirituality and Health and Bastyr University Center for Spirituality, Science, and Medicine, the Leveys will have copies of Living in Balance available for sale and signing.

GJSFO: Gwen Jones Student Feminist Organization @ Room 121
Nov 6 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
GJSFO: Gwen Jones Student Feminist Organization @ Room 121

Mission Statement: We explore feminism in a multicultural context.  We seek to understand ways that feminism can positively influence our own identities and empower members of our community.

Long Term Plans:

This group will meet bi-monthly and discuss feminist topics focused by short readings (which we plan to draw from a syllabus Gwen Jones created for an advanced feminism class she used to teach).  Students do not need to complete the readings to attend the meetings and participate in the discussions. Meetings should last between 1-2 hours depending on the size of the group and the intensity of the discussion.

We are also planning to bring in high profile feminist speakers once a quarter (hopefully starting with Gwen Jones).  Other opportunities may include creating an Antioch feminist blog, writing publishable articles, and engaging in community outreach.  But these activities will be totally optional.  Students will be able to participate in whatever way works for them.
