Visionary Organizing: From Growing Our Economy to Growing Our Souls
Join the Kirkridge Retreat Center and our friends from across our country and the globe as travel to Detroit for a Learning Journey organized by the James and Grace Lee Boggs Center to Nurture Community Leadership. (www.boggscenter.org). Since the 1967 Detroit Rebellion, the Boggs Center has asked the questions:
What time is it on the Clock of the World?
How do we move beyond protest to resistance and visionary organizing?
What are some of the ideas and practices in Detroit that have made these Detroit learning journeys a national and international gathering place to inspire, re-define and re-imagine work, education, leadership, art, justice, technology, food security.
Our vision emerges from our pain and our imagination .
Detroit has had 100,000 foreclosures, tens of thousands of water shut-offs. We have witnessed the total destruction of the public school system and we now face a massive displacement thru gentrification to “make Detroit great again” by the corporate and state leaders.
Join with the Boggs Center and Reverend Bill Wylie Kellerman on Detroit Learning Journey to re-define , re-spirit and rebuild Detroit from the ground up. Cost $625 does not include accommodtions or dinners.

New leadership is needed for new times, but it will not come from finding more wily ways to manipulate the external world. It will come as we who serve and teach and lead find the courage to take an inner journey toward both our shadows and our light—a journey that, faithfully pursued, will take us beyond ourselves to become healers of a wounded world.
There is in us an instinct for newness, for renewal, for a liberation of creative power. We seek to awaken in ourselves a force which really changes our lives from within. And yet the same instinct tells us that this change is a recovery of that which is deepest, most original, most personal in ourselves.
