2pm: Sue Supriano

I’m a newcomer to Portland as I just moved here about 2 months ago.  I’m honored that Albert Kaufman has asked me to speak about myself and my work as part of introducing myself to the Sacred Circle Dance Group and Our Community University.

A few words about my past and present–  Though I spent my “growing up years” in a rural area in the midwest, I’ve traveled a lot of the world and moved to Berkeley, CA as soon as I graduated from the University of Chicago in 1963.  I jumped right into the Civil Rights Movement and have continued as an activist for peace and justice ever since.  I lived in Berkeley and Oakland until fairly recently when I just spent 4 years in Eugene, OR..  For the last 30 years I have been involved in grassroots community radio (mostly the Pacifica radio station of KPFA as well as having my own independent website with podcasts of my audio interviews, for the last 8 years or so.   I have hundreds of interviews covering a wide variety of subjects nationally and internationally.  I will be happy to share more with you about my full and interesting life and work and we can talk about the importance of community radio of which you have a good example of here with KBOO Radio.

I have gathered together with Michele Brooks, David Franklin and Noelani Rodriguez to bring you part one of Our Community University.  We all have interesting and important skills to share and I intend to create a series of gatherings for that purpose.  Since many of us have daytime hours free it makes sense to use that time to learn, compare notes, network, and grow ourselves and get better at what we do.  Here is the first offering.  I hope you will join us.  If you’re not able to come, please pass this invitation along to others who might benefit from 4 hours  of interesting information-sharing, networking and skill-building.  Also, if you’d like to become a presenter in this series, please let me know.  Here’s to our emotional, spiritual, and mental growth and thriving, in a changing world!

Class 3: 1-2pm: David Franklin: Radical Presence: Creating Authentic Community in the Midst of Global Change

In these rapidly changing times, we are being called into deep integrity. We have an opportunity to move beyond the addictions, distractions, and suffering that keeps us in separation, and to learn how to love one another.

Our modern times call for spiritual practices and lifestyles that serve both the self and the collective. It is time to move beyond our individualistic, fear-based ways of living, and come together in community to support one another. In order to do so, it is essential to learn and engage in practices that create relationships that are sustainable, co-creative, and call forth our gifts.

In this experiential presentation, we’ll talk about the shifts that are occurring in our society, and how they are creating an opportunity for us to show up more powerfully and thrive. We’ll also learn and practice ways of being in authentic presence and community with one another. You’ll leave with a sense of new possibilities, hope, and connection.

David Franklin is a spiritual activist devoted to creating a new paradigm for masculinity that includes living the embodied path of spirituality, sexuality, leadership, and presence. As an experienced facilitator and ordained minister, he is masterful at creating and holding safe space for transformative experiences that utilize practical, body-centered modalities and down-to-earth spirituality.
