Sexism, Misogyny and the Power of Patriarchy Workshop. Saturday, January 25, 9am-3pm. For thousands of years, our planet has been ruled by men--from the state level on down to even our kitchens.

Drawing from Jung and Buddhism, Our time together will give us a chance to become more aware of this, and to exercise compassion as we continue to actively move beyond the rule of men. We’ll use pair sharing, along with group processing. Participants are encouraged to take any of the online tests at Project Implicit. Bring your own lunch/snacks. Childcare available upon request. Register at https://uufresno.org/home/adult-re/ . Contact growspiritually@uufresno.org  with questions .
