Just got word of this on a list serve. I wouldn’t mind joining!
Launching June 3, 2014
What can we learn about mindfulness from Star Trek? What lessons about prejudice can be sought in Battlestar Galactica? What can Batman tell us about the potential effects of trauma on one’s identity? What can the building blocks of Minecraft teach us of coherence? How may we embrace the simple wisdom in the Tardis illusion fromDr. Who?
This highly experiential adventure group will use geek culture as both map and compass and employ drama therapy and expressive arts techniques.
The group’s mission is:
- To foster engagement, participation, collaboration, insight and creativity.
- To explore identity, aspirations and personal responsibility.
- To cultivate wisdom and tools to navigate human (and non-human) relationships and life transitions.
- To honor non-conformity and build empathy.
Each month will bring a new theme, these will be the territories for our ongoing mission. The themes will come from Sci-Fi, Superheroes, RPGs, Midnight Movies, Comics and Technology.
We will begin with a Star Trek theme in June.
