Transformation Starts Within: Designing "Climate Resilience" at  Seattle Design Festival

Daybreak Star Indian Cultural Ctr 5011 Bernie Whitebear Way  Seattle, WA 98199

At the root of our climate crisis is trauma we carry in our relationship to the planet, each other, and ourselves. This trauma, unprocessed and often ignored, limits our ability to transform the oppressive systems that birth that trauma. Many religions and Indigenous communities teach that we are inherently connected to all beings. Thus, as Grace Lee Boggs put it, “Transform yourself to transform the world.”

Join us in this workshop where we will create a container for personal healing and empower ourselves and each other to create transformative and resilient ways of being. We will use movement, breathing-meditation, and written reflection to clear the internal chaos of fear and anxiety in our minds and come into our bodies. Calling our attention to the feeling of breath moving through our body, and the sensations we feel as we move - this is embodied awareness that we will use to cultivate deeper self-awareness, build connection to and trust in our intuition, and our interconnectedness to the world.

During this workshop, we will create prototypes of a resilient futures that we will invite you to test and iterate on as a community of practice seeking to transform ourselves and transform the world.

This event is a part of the 9th annual Seattle Design Festival, which features citywide tours,9th exhibits, outdoor installations, activities, neighborhood design crawls and more from August 16 -25. The 2019 Festival theme explores how we acheive the BALANCE that is needed for our earth, our communities and our families.

The Prison Pet Partnership Program is a model for the nation in the area of the rehabilitation of female offenders within the criminal justice system in Washington State. It began in 1981 with an idea by Sister Pauline Quinn, where inmates would reach out to help others by training special dogs that would assist a disabled person.  Maximum Security Prison.

This was a cooperative effort among Washington State University, Tacoma Community College and the Washington State Department of Corrections, trainers and volunteers. This beneficial program helps inmates at the Washington state Corrections Center for Women learn how to train, groom and board dogs within the prison walls. The program was later incorporated in 1991 as a separate not for profit organization. Animals are placed regionally in Washington, Oregon and Idaho. More than 500 dogs have been placed with handicapped and disabled individuals and families since the inception of the program. Email [email protected]   Website http://prisonp.tripod.com/

The animals we encounter may have disabilities, but they don’t consider themselves to be handicapped. We haven’t met an animal yet that feels sorry for itself. As long as their special needs are met, they are happy to be alive and loved. These animals are devoted, energetic and happy! Generally, they are just like any other pet. In fact, disabled animals are inspirational and develop extra special bonds with their caregivers; they just might be the best pets you will ever have! http://animalswithdisabilities.org/

The League of Humane Voters is building a voter database and we need you as a member in order to make a difference. Your commitment is simply to stay informed through our website on the issues affecting the treatment of animals.  Mary Chmelik, State Director Phone: 360-880-7873  Please sign up today by  Emailing [email protected]

Palouse Area Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH) 

Washington State University        Pullman, WA 99164

PATH to Success is an equine assisted growth and learning program that is directed at healthy youth development. It was started in 2008 as an extension of the Palouse Area Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH) program at Washington State University. Our program is conducted with the help of 4-6 gentle equine partners. 

The goal of PATH to Success is to improve children's well being by enhancing their social competence and ability to respond to common life stress.  See full details about 12 wk program. 

The joy of sitting astride and controlling a horse is an empowering experience for an individual with physical, mental and/or emotional disabilities. Horseback riding gives individuals with disabilities a chance to strengthen and relax muscles, increase joint mobility, and improve balance, posture, and coordination in a way that makes learning fun and interesting. Acquiring these skills fosters the development of confidence and self-reliance while riders learn the basics of caring for a horse. If you live in the area and would like to be part of PATH (as a rider or volunteer), please give us a call at (509) 335-7347. Thanks to Sue Jacobson People-Pet Partnership College of Veterinary Medicine
