Our Framework for Building Liberatory Communities of Practice
At Courage of Care, we focus on building compassion-based, counter-oppressive, healing-centered, transformational, and visionary practice communities — together — rather than trying to do it alone or in the silos of our individual movements and organizations. We understand how important it is to cultivate and tend to the connective tissue that holds us all together in this inextricable web of mutuality. To do that, we offer a relational model for building cultures and communities of liberatory practice. The model, called CourageRISE, leverages somatic, trauma-informed, relational and restorative practices to help us heal and shift toward a more just, generative, and life-affirming way of being.
