Talking with People Who Are Thinking About Suicide with Susan Marie
Feb 19 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

It’s hard to know what to say, just how to respond to people in distress. It is especially scary when you believe the person may be considering suicide. Suicide is preventable.  We’ll talk about dangerous myths, the best ways to ask about suicide, specific what-to-say-next if someone says “yes I am” to your question, and how to help the person get help.

The note packet will be screen shared during the presentation.

Everyone is invited to attend. No registration is necessary. Hosted by the Beacon Village Lunch Program. For additional information contact Kepper Petzing, or 503-284-2068.

Returning to the Land: Decolonization
Feb 24 @ 12:30 pm – 2:00 pm

January-February 2024: “Returning to the Land” by Dr. Nia To Go There (Cree) a series of four webinars co-sponsored by Decolonizing Quakers and Friends Peace Teams.

The overall theme, Returning to the Land, is a clarion call for us to change how we see ourselves within and in relationship with the Living Earth and other life-forms. Using a cultural lens, we examine the Western culture and contrast it with the original culture of the Indigenous peoples. The big question is: How do we bridge these contrasting worldviews and heal from our shared colonial history and heritage?

The topics are listed below with their registration links. You are invited to register for all four, although it is not required. Nia will recommend short readings for each program. A contribution of $20 to $50 is recommended, with a minimum of $5.

3:30 to 5:00 eastern time12:30 to 2:00 pacific time

This module focuses on healing from collective trauma created by a colonial history.  The key question is how do we heal?  We look at real-world examples of healing by examining the process of building community and strengthening relationships, creating environments where each person is valued and understood and where cultural options are openly shared for the enrichment of the community. The reading for this module is entitled, Collective Trauma and our Emerging Future by Otto Scharmer and Thomas Hubl.
