Jumpstart January: Relationship Intelligence Workshop with Michael Shell and Rev. Gabriel Burford

Tuesday, January 10 @ 10:30 am 1:00 pm

Humans are known as the most social of all mammals. While relationships can be fulfilling and rewarding, they can also be very challenging. Often, we will feel very alone and separate. This workshop will share new perspectives on relationships with tools to cultivate and sustain them.

This workshop and discussion on relationship intelligence will take place in person in the Picker Room.

Rev. Gabriel Burford has deep roots in the midcoast community, relationship intelligence, and climate sustainability. As an interfaith chaplain ordained by the Chaplaincy Institute of Maine, Gabriel is passionate about supporting communities of care.

By advocating for this time not just as a crisis, but as an opportunity to revive the social fabric we all share, Gabriel highlights that cultural revival and climate work are not just for public advocates, politicians, or activists. Gabriel believes that if we find our place together as communities of belonging, we can find our place caring for the world. He takes a stand for strengthening our relationships at every level so that we strengthen a climate response right where we are.
