*** CANCELED ***
We are so sorry to have to shift at the last moment, but due to unexpected circumstances we have to cancel tonight's session. Thank you for your understanding.
In this session, we will build relationships by practicing together, implementing what we learned at the previous session to cultivate embodied self-empathy and empathy.
About Beloved Community Well
Beloved Community Well is a weekly practice space to build skills and connections for people committed to justice, healing and wholeness. Each week we will rotate between workshop sessions where facilitators will offer content on topics relevant to nonviolent movement work and relational sessions where people can give and receive support. This project is a collaboration between East Point Peace Academy and the Necessary Trouble Collective.
We welcome everyone from around the world to participate in this weekly space and we have an intention to address the reality that BIPOC folx often feel isolated and alone in nonviolent movement spaces, so we will have affinity spaces each month where we hold separate break out groups for BIPOC identified folx and white identified folx. We hope you will join us in this experiment!!
