Put the experience of mindful conflict resolution into your body!

When conflicts arise – perhaps racism comes up, a co-worker pushes our buttons, or we’re embroiled in family dynamics – most of us have a default setting, and it’s not necessarily the most helpful one. In this workshop, we will explore how to become more mindful in those moments so we can choose a response that is more aligned with our values and the outcomes we want to achieve.

Artful Facilitation for Productive, Inclusive Groups

A 3-day workshop for facilitators, managers, community leaders, advocates, or anyone who is motivated to guide groups to do their best work.  Learn how to understand, design for and manage group dynamics by grounding the work in themes of inclusion, connection and clarity of purpose.

This training focuses on skills for outside facilitators (those who are not members of the groups they are facilitating), though the tools are applicable to other situations.

Conflict Resolutions: The Basics

Where do you need these skills the most?  Girlfriend who never listens? Racist uncle? Unsupportive boss? Tantrum-ing teen? Bring your questions and examples, and learn to apply these skills to all of who you are and where you go.

In this practical and interactive training, you will gain tools to have hard conversations, say what you need to say, and listen with your whole self.

Build your communication skills and learn ways to separate your intention from your impact on others. Effective communication often begins with a deeper understanding of how the world is experiencing you.

Equity-Informed Small Group Facilitation

Join us for an exploration of the difficulties and intricacies of facilitating small-group discussions that touch on our personal experiences of race, identity, equity and more.

This training focuses on small-group discussion within a larger forum; we will not cover process design or lead facilitation. The skills we will cover are applicable in any situation where people struggle to discuss difficult or divisive issues.

Interrupting Racism: Imagine a world where, when racism arises, we take action.

We’ll start by providing a grounded space to talk deeply and with heart. But we won’t stop there! Simply talking about racism is not enough to dismantle the power structures that uphold racial injustice. At the same time, creating systemic change requires healthy working relationships.

This actionshop is focused on interpersonal racism, within the context of systemic and institutional oppression. We will explore the way racism arises in our everyday interactions and offer tools and practice for interrupting racism.

Institutional Equity: Tools and Frameworks for Leaders

By the year 2042, white people will become a minority in the United States of America. The context of the world is changing radically, and we are living the response to those changes in our communities and our workplaces.

This training intends to empower individuals to take leadership, wherever you are, to ensure that the response to the cultural shift in our country is responsible, healthy, and just.

People of any level of experience are welcome. The training will be highly interactive and will challenge each of us to move through challenges and discomfort toward engagement, connection, and action.

Understand Racism: 6 Week Dialogue

Two hours a week for six weeks you will explore racial bias from many different angles. A trained facilitator will create a safe environment in which participants can engage in guided discussion around selected readings and videos.

You will have the benefit of making deeper connections with people in the dialogue and raising your awareness of how racism affects us all; whether it is your personal lived experiences or learning from the experiences of other participants and/or facilitators.
