POSTPONED: Diversity Toolkit: Personal Development for Community Transformation
March 21, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 8:00 pm CDT
with Yoli Maya Yeh
This event has been postponed by the organizers due to COVID-19 precautions.
This immersive experience is centered in a New Paradigm Skills Set, a toolkit for self-discovery and community in a time of volatile change. Using experiential learning methods and a retreat atmosphere we will dive into basic cultural competencies for engaging disciplines such as yoga, bodywork, meditation and movement in diverse and equitable ways in socially-engaged settings. Meeting ourselves where we are and acknowledging a collective need for equity-informed spaces, this workshop will explore communication, conflict resolution and dialogue skills that enable both individuals and facilitators to be effective space holders for themselves and others. Join us in this adventure in transformational learning that draws from Indigenous Tradition, non-linear approaches in learning, experiential education and transformational & restorative justice practice. Please bring your dinner/snacks for nourishment.
