This training is the third and last module of the Relational Culture Training Series. This training explores the intentional practices that expand our capacity to include diversity and complexity, anticipating challenges which inevitably emerge from deep relationship. We learn practices for bridging disparities of power, access, and risk in our relationships.
This creates a path to deep appreciation and understanding that allows us to amplify the resilience of our social/community fabric, 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 together the stories that make up each of our lives, lineages and legacies.
