Finding Our Place In The Movement - Month 4 Week 4 with Kerri Kelly
October 18 - 22, 2021
Finding our place in the movement isn’t just about finding purpose, it’s about examining the unique roles we were born into and how they have predisposed us to unequal conditions within the dynamic system of oppression.
Only when we understand how we’ve been shaped and socialized by culture and systems, can we show up with skill and accountability for the work of liberation. In this course, we will explore the roles we’ve been socialized to play, how we participate in maintaining them, how we’re affected by them and what our unique roles are in disrupting dominant systems and building the future that we all deserve.
This week's sessions will include:
- Monday Lecture: Social Location inquiry | 2 - 3:15pm pdt | 5 - 6:15pm edt
- Wednesday Practice: Detox Practice | 9 - 10:15am pdt | 12 - 1:15pm edt
- Friday Meditation: Centering Meditation | 9 - 10am pdt | 12 - 1pm edt
