Transformative Powers of Social Justice

With Cicely Belle Blain and Becca Schwenk

June 21 - 25, 2023

Unravel the potential for social justice to heal and transform all spheres of life. Group connection, introspection and creative processing will instil within us deeper understandings of social justice and its powerful potential. Learn to utilize social justice as community care, and dream up ways to meaningfully apply it in relationships to work, others, and the self.

Social justice is for everyone, and can be enacted in infinite ways. When we nurture collective desire for a just world — engaging with unique ideas and shared dialogues — we build greater awareness of pathways towards effective change. This awareness allows us to effectively navigate the paths; guiding us towards a horizon of deep justice.

Through interactive methods, mindful prompts, ‘aha’ moments, and skill-building, activate your ability to tend to the world through social justice.

Session themes include:

  • Fundamentals and theories of anti-oppression
  • Racial justice, anti-racism and unpacking white supremacy
  • Fundamentals of gender, sexuality, sexism, patriarchy, queer identities and more
  • Language, communication and connection
  • Bias, allyship and solidarity
