Reclaiming Our Humanity: Limited Series
Time & Location
About the Event
Our workshop series, "Reclaiming Our Humanity", consists of four one-hour self-reflective dialogue sessions intended to explore and improve our relationships with our communities and with ourselves. Once we advance further into the seriies, we will also offer multiple watch parties and discussion forums, providing the unique opportunity to connect and share experiences with our DC neighbors. Discussions will occur in identity-related infinity groups so we can create a safe, yet brave space for beginners to this work. See our agenda below. Let us know if you have any questions.
Meaningful introductions (to provide space for all voices equally, limit responses to the questions provided)
- What's your name?
- Where do you live in the city?
- Why are you here?
Setting up breakout sessions (introduction to breakout sessions) We will break up participants into Brave Space Affinity groups
In Breakout Sessions:
Presentations about tools we commonly use to learn about ourselves
- Verbal vs non verbal
- What helps you feel safe in situations where you feel threatened?
- How can we create a safe space on Zoom?
Writing exercise -- affinity groups
Participants are journaling. No one is going to see this...participants choose:
- Recall a time when you felt small, intimidated or degraded…
- Recall a time when you did something you felt ashamed about
Debrief/Discussion -- affinity groups
