      How To Be A Calm, Effective Changemaker During Troubled Times

      "Action absorbs anxiety," so come to the Commonwealth Club to learn how to lead change effectively, from the heart.

      Whether we are actively working toward change or we just want to chat with our family and friends, we all need tools to stay centered and calm during these stressful times. How can we be effective, compassionate changemakers -- and even find joy and meaning -- as we deal with our stress and the negativity in our environment?

      Our speaker, James Baraz, is a co-founder of Spirit Rock Meditation Center, has taught Bill Gates, and was himself taught by Joseph Goldstein and Ram Dass. For decades, he's been showing people how to lead change through the "joyful responsibility" of commitment, love and effective action. He is coming to the Club to teach us how to reawaken our joy and avoid becoming overwhelmed and rendered ineffective by outrage, anxiety or despair.

      Cost: Payment required - $20 non-members, $10 members, $8 students
