Create in your community a

Soul Force Politics #RadicalLove Chapter

 

After we conduct a workshop or retreat, we are often asked how one might go about building on these skills and talents with others in their local area.  We envision a world where Soul Force Politics #RadicalLove chapters are created in communities all across the country to engage and support each other in putting radical love principles into action.

Ideas on how to get started:

• Invite friends to a regularly scheduled meet up (like a book club).  You can use our #SoulForcePolitics podcasts as a starter point for conversation.  Agree to listen to a particular podcast and gather to discuss questions and explore topics raised in that episode.

 

• Join our Soul Force Politics #RadicalLove Discussion Group on Facebook (or start your own) to connect your chapter and create a space for questions, comments, insights, and shared ideas.

 

• Use our guide for conversation topics to help you get started.

 

Schedule a Soul Force Politics retreat in your community or invite your group to visit the Camp Soul Force Politics’ retreat center at Apotheosis Farm — inquire at firestarter@soulforcepolitics.org to schedule and invite Heather Mizeur to facilitate.  Review scheduled retreat offerings on our home page’s “retreat” button.

 

• Invite Heather Mizeur to speak to your group and/or offer a livestream video to kick off your activities.

 

• Other activities that could support a #RadicalLove community group include: nature walks, meditation sessions, potlucks with healthy food for the soul, sound baths, and ceremony of all types that are used to connect and heal each other.

⁃ You are a reflection of me. What is it that I am rejecting?
⁃ What are your values? How can I better understand your perspective?

✓ Radical Love Begins as an Inside Job

⁃ I cannot love anything externally in the world if I am not first filled with self love.
⁃ What negative self talk keeps me from loving myself fully?
⁃ Can I see the ways that I am not loving myself when I am not loving you?
⁃ Compassion is an ally in radical love.

✓ Reflections on Gratitude

⁃ It is hard to be angry when we are filled with gratitude.

⁃ We create our world with our words.
⁃ What intention is behind our creative force?
⁃ Are we bringing awareness to the power of our ability to create?

✓ The Choices are Love or Fear

⁃ Every moment gives us an opportunity to practice our power of choice.
⁃ Do we respond with love or fear?
⁃ How might I improve granting my love to others without conditions?

✓ Finding the Light Within the Darkness

⁃ The sky needs the darkness to create rain; the cosmos needs darkness to shine the stars; the sun needs the darkness to reflect its light off the moon.
⁃ Our wholeness of being requires us to love our light and our darkness.
⁃ However, loving our darkness does not mean we act out upon it.
⁃ How does the observation of my darkness empower me to make choices based in love?

✓ The Illusion of Impossibility

⁃ We tell ourselves many stories that are not true, including ones that limit our power.
⁃ What do I currently view as impossible in my life?
⁃ How might my world be different if I acted with the confidence of possibility?
⁃ Do I honor my ability to manifest and co-create?
⁃ What are my limiting beliefs?
