Encounter race where it lives in your life. Rooted in the radical supposition that regardless of color or status, race has harmed us all—though in different ways—Radical Dharma Circle is an encounter with awareness and practices of dismantling the negative impacts of racialization on our collective minds, hearts, and bodies.
This highly experiential weekend features identity and issue-based caucuses, full-group congresses, and capacity-building using embodied practices we need to expand our sense of spaciousness to find a more complete truth and greater awareness, understanding, and compassion across lines of difference and among our own tribes.
We learn to:
- Move past clever language to courageously explore our relationship to race through deep listening
- Develop practices that cut through bias while increasing personal space and capacity
- Begin to unpack and reveal the relationship between intersecting oppressions and how they work to keep us apart
- Confront the stored history and impact of race on how we show up
- Engage in issue-based caucuses and full-group congresses to meet race where it matters in our lives
