Working together

Living and working in community brings connection and collaboration. Yet, working and living with others comes with challenges too. These challenges are a natural part of the process and, if handled well, can strengthen ourselves and our groups. This clinic will explore tools and techniques to navigate challenging moments successfully. The format will be a mix of presentation and conversation.

Empowering Collaborative Groups:
We will need to do the hard, long-term work of making systemic change. Online or in person, the work of change and transformation must be done with other people–those annoying beings who do not always agree with us, and want their own way!

Collaborative groups may be healing, nurturing, and inspirational—or they may founder on the rocks of conflict and poor communication. But when we understand their patterns and challenges, we can design structures that favor supportive, nurturing relationships.

In this six-week online course, Starhawk guides us through her book,
The Empowerment Manual: A Guide for Collaborative Groups. It’s the book she wrote that draws on her decades of experience—often wonderful, sometimes painful—in activist groups, spiritual groups, permaculture groups, collective households and more.


A core component of this course – and every Earth Activist Training course – is our private forum: Earth Activist Training Online network. This platform is where you will find a network to connect with classmates and other Earth Activist students.
