We Will Not Be Broken Workshop

We won’t let the suffering of the world break us. As we step into 2024, we embrace the struggle and double down on our commitment to build and maintain power and presence in service of collective healing, freedom and action.

In this workshop, we’ll explore ways in which stress and trauma can pull us out of connection and presence, and can impact our ability to keep showing up. We’ll practice reconnecting with our deepest commitments for the work, and our deepest, unshakable capacity for radical transformation.

Kin SkillUp

Our Kin Skillshare is a co-learning space to help Relational Facilitators deepen their understanding of the CourageRISE framework, refine and adapt skills and curricula for their specific work or context, support them in delivering CourageRISE based programming into their specific context, and strengthen their connections with other relational facilitators in the cohort.

Our next skillshare will be on the theme of stress shapes! Participants will have an opportunity to explore the underlying theory, frames and approaches that shape our model, and dig deeper into leading this work with a broader systems lens.  The group will meet on alternating Tuesdays from 1-2:30pm ET.

This program is open to all who have completed our Relational Facilitators Program (previously Courageous Leaders).

Join us online to explore how building cultures of practice rooted in care and justice can help us navigate the perceived tensions between spirituality and activism, or “inner” and “outer” transformation.

Peer Process Group

How do our own edges and shadows show up in and inhibit our capacity to facilitate and hold space?

The program is open to all who have completed our Relational Facilitators Program, or our past Courageous Leaders programs.

Succulence Program Launch

Succulence is a healing and integration program for relational facilitators, coaches, trainers, teachers, educators, leaders and others who work to make our organizations, communities and movements for healing, justice and liberation more resilient. The program acknowledges the toll of care-work on our relational tenders and that we, too, need spaces where we can show up fully in service of our own healing and integration. 

The name succulence aims to capture the juicy, abundant joy inherent in healing work, while recognizing the ways in which many of us have learned to survive within systems of scarcity.

Relational Facilitators Program Launch

Our Relational Facilitators Program is designed to help nurture a network of facilitators committed to strengthening the relational tissue of our intersecting movements for liberation.

We know the work of tending to the relational tissue of our movements is often invisibilized, or seen as less valuable or less urgent than front line organizing, but that it is just as critical for the sustainability of our work and our people.

Join our growing community of hundreds of movement leaders, trainers, mediators, DEI professionals, community organizers, educators, NGO leaders, coaches and healers who are building relational culture.

June 29-30, 2024

We hope you will join us.
