Our Heart and Soul is our Network of Dedicated Change Agents
The Inner Resilience Network supports people engaged in personal and collective transformation. By offering dedicated spaces to "hold the holders," the IRN nurtures the personal and interpersonal resilience of the practitioners, facilitators, and activists creating compassionate, life-affirming, ecologically conscious communities.
The Inner Resilience Network was launched at the first Transition US convergence in Minneapolis MN in 2017. We are in collaborative partnership with Transition US and Transition Network, yet we are our own entity working with organizations and individuals from many other sectors who are actively serving the good of humanity towards a more just, resilient and healthy world. We see the inner and the interpersonal aspect of change as being a significant, and vital aspect of this work.
OUR MISSION To catalyze local, national and international efforts centered on building skills, resources and support systems that promote:
Personal-relational resilience in the face of today’s multifaceted challenges;
Personal-relational growth to bring forth the human qualities needed in a life-affirming culture.
OUR VISION We envision a network of individuals throughout our country and world who are actively engaged in forms of personal and collective transformation that tangibly create communities that are compassionate, resilient, ecologically conscious and connected. We envision the IRN as an active source of support, feedback, dialogue and community for this vision.
Participation in the network is open to individuals dedicated to inner resilience. New members are invited to participate in our regular discussions and contribute to our events, projects and trainings.
