Column 1
Bring our full presence, setting our phones and logistics aside for the day.
Create a non-judgemental space for growth that is heart centered and forward moving.
Bring our vulnerability, shining light on the places inside each of us that may be in need of healing.
Explore the duality of being targets of anti-semitism while being agents of racism.
Explore that duality with openness, curiosity and the propensity for growth.
Work to dismantle white supremacy, first by uncovering it in our own hearts, minds and bodies, and then by locating ourselves within our communities, as agents of change.
Use ritual as a tool to heal from the ways we are dehumanized by anti-semitism, racism & white supremacy.
