This monthly gathering is for those grounded in the Wisdom lineage and practices in which we seek to know God and our world with more of ourselves through the three centers of our heart, mind, and body. This experiential gathering is designed to expand our capacity to be awake to racism in ourselves and systems of racism in our community. Our time would consist of embodiment and grounding practices, engaging materials around racism/anti-racism, and time for small group deeper dives into the intersectionality in our lives.
We call this group into being because we sense a calling personally and collectively to do this work as the wounds of separateness and polarization continue to be illuminated. The Wisdom lineage invites us to deeply connect with our wholeness, to feel our remorse and to offer the qualities of our aliveness as we move through this period of great reckoning.
