The Joy of Activism with Michelle and Cheryl


Join Michelle C. Johnson and Cheryl Schirillo for The Joy of Activism featuring meditation, music and movement on the 2nd Friday of each month from 7:30 – 8:45 am at 18 Springs (detailed directions and parking info below).

Michelle and Cheryl have teamed up for this new offering because they believe that their strength and tenacity as activists grows from their ability to regularly plug into joy and deep self-care. So often social change movements are a response to the toxicity present in our society, especially oppressive, cultural norms and the abuse of power and privilege. They feel it is helpful for activists to work in partnership with Nature, create and connect with joy and light, and to make space to rejuvenate so we may continue doing our social change work in the world. This monthly event will include metta meditation, music, intention setting and visioning, art and movement. There is no set fee for this offering, but heart donations of $5-$20 are appropriate and appreciated.  

18 Springs Community Healing Center is located across from Wake Forest University and next to the BB&T Center. The address is: 2424 Reynolda Rd, Winston-Salem, NC 27106. Enter into the parking lot off Reynolda Rd. You will see a small building with a large picture window directly in front of you: that is 18 Springs. Parking is available near the front door.
