when + where we enter


Bridging contemplative practices to the principles of healing justice, When + Where We Enter is a 2-day intensive workshop that guides participants through embodied practices of introspection, meditation, and skillful group dialogue to cultivate strategies that move us from personal healing and transformation to critical thinking and collective action.

Whatever our role in community engagement and social justice, we can learn to look deeply with equanimity and compassion to skillfully understand how to: get grounded and restored; (re)balance our aspirations with our available resources; take and sustain skillful action; honor and tend to our well-being with skillful strategies that foster compassion, resilience, transformation and healing.

We will focus specifically on:

  • GETTING GROUNDED ~ Cutting through the noise in order to get clear about our intentions and honestly assess what we feel compelled and equipped to do.
  • BUILDING OUR CAPACITY ~ Cultivating an intimate understanding of ourselves and our values; examining the ways we embody privilege and risk as well as our relationship to injustice, power and oppression; fortifying ourselves through transformative practices of deep listening and skillful communication. Discerning how we show up, lend our presence and privilege, and apply our skills without creating more harm.
  • CENTERING OUR WELLNESS + PRACTICING ACCOUNTABILITY ~ Using sacred tools and skillful strategies to restore, nourish and sustain healing, well-being, and wholeness; and establishing the circles of trust to support our learning and growing toward compassion, connection, and reconciliation.
