What is Radical Inclusion Practice©?
Radical Inclusion Practice is a fresh, honest, and kind way to get real about race and gender. We turn our attention to the inner work necessary to forge meaningful change in the outer world.
We discover and harness unconscious biases that are embedded in our stories about how the world works. We learn to unravel the hold of our internal equivalents to the laws, policies, procedures, and organizational hierarchies that limit access and advancement in society.
Our biases play out powerfully as our Rules for Living – what we assume to be “normal” appearance and behavior, “just the way things are.” We begin to see how we have been rewarded with safety, belonging, and security and for following the Rules. Or in some way punished, cast apart and aside as we have bent or broken them, much as incentives and opportunities are withheld from people whose appearance and behaviors do not conform to White and male standards in public spaces.
Stay on your learning edge Andbuild resilience with discomfort
Radical Inclusion Practice© supports you to stay in productive discomfort – the optimal zone for learning – as a helping professional, activist, spiritual seeker, or anyone who has begun to question your own views and relationship with skin color and gender. As we practice, we build our resilience. We draw on honesty and kindness to do the emotional and behavioral labor of owning the unconscious biases that come into view.
This work redirects our trust in something beyond the rightness of our beliefs and behaviors. We are held through our vulnerability, blaming and defensiveness, self-judgment and shame. As we learn, these normal, if scary, discomforts, are unrecognized handmaidens of wisdom. Radical Inclusion Practice© helps us show up, offering wise guidance when we need to step back, recoup, re-nourish, recover. It anchors us in the reality that while we are each here to make our unique and particular contribution, neither is the work ours to complete.
What radical Inclusion Practice will not do:
What Radical Inclusion Practice will not do is help you substitute a new fixed identity, secure in its anti-racist, anti-misogynist wisdom and invulnerable to further learning.
As we practice, we become trustworthy human beings, able to to perceive more clearly, entertain new possibilities, and partner co-creatively on this lifelong journey
AS WE ENGAGE IN RADICAL INCLUSION PRACTICE, WE
- begin to perceive and disarm the power of stories that we were taught as children
- map the rules, values, and roles embedded in those stories, and the rewards of belonging that we reap from continuing to follow them.
- deepen our capacity to hear and invite in the conflicting voices within that shape our multiple identities and their differing lived experiences.
- reckon with the gap between our idealized and actual self.
- enlist our discomforts and fear around race as guides and allies.
- learn to learn from and within the body.
- nourish curiosity, openheartedness, openhandedness, willingness, and empathy.
We begin to see and feel in fresh ways.
We grow in humility and integrity.
We gain freedom to act from a place of inclusion, to be inclusionary.
In the midst of life.
In this series of private sessions you receive personal support and guidance as you gain skills and resilience to uncover, include, and harness your unconscious biases.
You will learn to enlist your discomforts and fears around race as allies. Exercise new curiosity, a new willingness to step up and trust yourself to figure out what is the next, right-sized, and right action for you to take, aligned with your deeply felt values – and your longing.

Set up your 30 minute complimentary consult: we’ll explore your calling to the inner work of race, gender, and other fundamental identities that you hold. Your questions, hopes and fears are welcome.
