The Graceful Revolution: Justice, Power, and Change for Communities

February 7, 2020, 10am-3pm, The Nal Eena Haws, Oregon State University

The Graceful Revolution is a gentle invitation for student, faculty, staff, and community leaders to address seemingly impermeable membranes and disrupt the social norms that create polarization in our communities. Old paradigms around conflict resolution are no longer relevant in our current political and social environment.

Using The Graceful Revolution process, Dr. Melissa Bird has helped thousands of people bridge gaps and create meaningful conversations to move forward as a community.

The Graceful Revolution and Dare to Lead™ Workshop

March 7th 9:00-12:00

The Good Samaritan Episcopal Church, 333 NW 35th Street, Corvallis OR 97330


Dr. Melissa Bird and Heidi East McGowan are excited to bring you an introductory session based on the Graceful Revolution and Brené Brown Dare To Lead™ in an interactive and reflective workshop designed to tap into your heart centered rebellion and call to courage as the leader of your life. 


Graceful Revolution – Inside of each one of us is a pull towards our divine assignment. Some people deny that pull until one day the resistance becomes too much and we have to succumb to our purpose. Whether you know exactly what your calling is or if you need help finding it, this process can help you get clear on where you are headed.


Dare to Lead™ – Using the four skill sets of courage from Brené Brown’s latest research. a) rumbling with vulnerability, b) living into our values, c) braving trust, and d) learning to rise, this session will focus on defining your personal call to courage as the leader of your life. You will come away with concepts to catalyze a movement of courage, trust and resiliency within one's personal life, workplace and community.
