In this advanced training we use storytelling and somatic movement to explore the relational practice of Bridging, using resonance to grow our capacity to handle complexity and bridge diversity. Building on the bonding we explore in the first training, we learn advanced resonance practices to bridge disparities of power, access, and risk in our relationships. This creates a path to deep appreciation and understanding, amplifying the resilience of our community and generating more equitable opportunity, decentralized agency, and collective learning. We learn relational approaches to conflict within groups, including those that emerge both in immediate, intimate relationships as well as along intersections of race, class, gender, generation and other forms of diversity. We explore identity as both an important site of inclusion and justice, and as a complex reality rooted in a long history of social construction and division, exploring how we can reclaim and honor the powerful stories that make up each of our lives and lineages. This workshop is the second level of the Relational Culture Training Series.
