The World Social Initiative Forum (WSIF) and the East African Association of Steiner/Waldorf Schools will host a 7-part Online Interactive Workshop Series entitled “WSIF East Africa Online 21-22: Healing, Courage and Hope, Developing Resilience in Covid Time” from November 13, 2021, to June 11, 2022, via Zoom. It will focus on three qualities that we need to strengthen in order to develop individual and community resilience:
- Healing the past- How can we strengthen ourselves to face the work ahead through a salutogenic approach to health in all areas of life (physical, social, mental, and environmental health)?
- Courage in the present – How can we nurture our spiritual and soul life to foster courage in what we bring to the world through our work and trust in what will arise out of our collective efforts despite the challenges we face during the Covid pandemic?
- Hope for the future – How can we ensure a holistic education which nurtures a healthy development of our children by fostering hope and purpose within us as individuals and the community as a whole, as we step into an unpredictable future?
