Search for Common Ground’s President John Marks and Senior Vice President Susan Collin Marks will be leading two weekend workshops on social entrepreneurship.

The workshop titled “Social Entrepreneurship: from Spiritual Values to Effective Action” will be held Oct. 14-18 at Hollyhock in Cortes Island of British Columbia and Nov. 28-30 at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, CA.

Both founders have been awarded Skoll Fellowships for Social Entrepreneurship and will guide workshop participants to focus and define their own vision of social entrepreneurship.

John and Susan’s vision led them to create SFCG in 1982 and they will draw on their experiences to offer individual coaching as well as holistic instruction through role play, mentoring, reflection and meditation.

The workshop is designed to help participants explore your deepest leadership wisdom, the values that inform it, and learn how to harness it to use toward realizing your vision of social change.
