Integrated, comprehensive, guided experience. Agendas, handouts, and facilitation notes align with Living in the Tension: The Quest for a Spiritualized Racial Justice.
Dialogue-based, experiential approach. Workshop agendas allow groups of 5 to 25 people to explore how issues discussed in Living in the Tension relate to personal lives and communities.
Non-linear, thematic approach. Select exercises to match your group’s needs. Thematic threads available include activities designed to build community, analysis, emotional capacity, and “both/and” communication skills.
Grassroots philosophy. Assumes people learn by doing, and groups need to organize themselves to develop skills and capacities that bring needed change to organizations, institutions, and communities.
