Radical Inclusion Practice© Retreat: As we walk
Saturday, December 4th, 2021 | 1-5PM ET | $169 per participant
Answer the call: walk with self-awareness. Lay down a path towards the repair and reconciliation of racial injustices. Cultivate what MIT action-researchers call action confidence, “the courage and capacity…to create reality as we step into it.”
In this half-day retreat, we will take the support of Radical Inclusion’s nondual practices to
- Answer the call to face hard truths, even as you feel the parts of you who are reluctant.
- Be changed as you listen anew to familiar voices, and attend to voices that have been murmering in the background.
- Hold your imperfect human past and present with compassion.
- Free yourself to envision a future where we are not compelled to repeat a personal and a shared national history we did not know.
- Water the path you lay down with heartfelt grief, and know the preciousness of each and every human life.
- Cultivate courage and gravitas as we harvest our months of learning under pandemic conditions.
- Celebrate your readiness to persist, one step at a time.
Together, in good company, let us take one step forward and again declare, “Here I am.”
Perhaps like me you have been a sprinter most of your life – quick out of the gate, lacking stamina for the long haul. It’s not easy to keep a focus on the far horizon we are moving towards, or to trust the glacial pace at which the arc bends from our human perspective.
The news cycle moves on and on. And in the ongoing absence of a galvanizing national leadership WE, it turns out, we are the the animating energies of change. Even if we are just waking up. Even if our circle of influence seems small. Even though we are still learning.
As White people committed to laying down this path as we walk, we can begin to imagine and create a world where racial healing is an ongoing feature of our personal lives and the world. We can begin to imagine – and lay down a path in a world where meaningful change takes place.
Let your readiness pull you forward
This 4-hour practice-based retreat offers a supported encounter with our personal and national history, freeing us to both grieve and to lay down the path we envision towards a different future.
Join me and 16 travelers committed to practical, heart-opening change together. Group size is limited to optimize transformation.
We will take the support of nondual practices to work with our own lived experiences and memories, and with a small slice of American history. You will also be introduced to a model that can help us map our unconscious responses to the material we work with – in this retreat and in daily life. The Window of Tolerance was originally developed by Daniel J. Siegel, clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine and executive director of the Mindsight Institute.
Let’s take these illuminating and strengthening steps together.
