Description of Activity
Make sure that each participant has their journal, and something to write with. Invite everyone to respond to this question:
How has music been a part of your own resistance and transformation or social justice work?
Allow five minutes for journaling. After five minutes, invite volunteers to share a word, phrase, or sentence from their journal entry.
Invite a participant to come forward and extinguish the chalice as you say these words: "As we extinguish this chalice, may we let the light of our tradition kindle our hope for a better world."
Distribute Taking It Home and invite participants to continue to write in their journals between workshops.
