RC Webinars

DESCRIPTION

“RC Webinars” are RC classes led on Zoom by some of our ILRP/ICRPs and RRPs on important issues for the International Community.  They will be one and a half to two hours long—with theory, mini-sessions (randomly assigned), and demonstrations of counseling.  We anticipate a large audience and so they will not be very interactive (though people may submit questions via the chat box—the leader may or may not have time to answer).   

We will charge for the webinar, on a sliding scale from $0 to $25; they will be treated as a Regional Gather-in for financial accounting. The organizer for each webinar will have the details about payment.

When possible the leader will offer the webinar twice on the same day, or in the same couple of days, once in the morning and once in the evening, to make it as accessible as possible for different time zones.  

If a Community wants to organize interpreting for the webinar, we may extend the length a bit.  Please notify the organizer of the webinar in advance so that we may plan for interpreting.

"Parents Liberation and Oppression During a Pandemic and Other Times," for parents and allies.

Marya Axner,  Sunday, June 14: 9:00 - 11 a.m. and 4:00 - 6 p.m. East Coast USA

An Introduction to Parents Liberation and Oppression: We love our children with all our hearts and they love us, but often the conditions we live in make it hard for us to parent in the way we would like to. Parents do some of the most valuable work in society, but we don't get the support we need to do the kind of job we would like to do. This is especially true during the COVID crises. We are stressed out and our children pick up on that and it makes a rough time for everyone. In this webinar we will show you how to set up emotional support for yourself. That will put you in a better frame of mind and will also give you a better shot at connecting deeply with your young people. 

Organizer: Rebecca Mautner <Rebecca@rpmautner.com>, Tech: Sparky Griego <sgriego@rocketmail.com>


"Effects of Climate Change on Africa & Africans”

Janet Kabue (ARP of Nairobi, Kenya), June 21, 7 to 8am and 8 to 9pm- East African Time

In this webinar we will look at how Climate change has affected Africa as a continent and the lives of people in Africa.  And the link between Colonialism, Climate change, how industrialized nations are living at the ecological expense of this continent and how this is fueling Climate change.

“The Basics of RC Women’s Liberation”

Diane Balser. Sunday, June 28, 11am-1pm and 8pm-10pm, Eastern Time USA

This webinar is for all women only. The ideas and practice of RC women’s liberation have developed during the last 45 years throughout most of the International Communities. We will look at the basic ideas/ concepts of RC women’s liberation. We will explore the assumption that all females can only transform our own lives and the structures of oppression if we use the tools of discharge and re-evaluation to free ourselves from the distresses installed as a result of sexism and male domination. We will have the opportunity to work on our material connected to internalized sexism and sexism; our relationships to all women (race, class, gay oppression, anti-semitism, age disability etc) and our relationships to men. Lastly, this work is done in the context of assuming that women need to take our rightful place in the current time as leaders of the planet.
