"Say the Wrong Thing" book coverRooted in the principles of the H.E.A.R.T.,* this Saturday to Monday retreat with Dr. Amanda Kemp is for those deeply engaged in anti-racism work, have read Amanda Kemp’s book, Say the Wrong Thing: Stories and Strategies for Racial Justice and Authentic Community, and/or have participated in one or more of Amanda’s classes or programs. [*Hold space for transformation; Express yourself: Act with intention (driven by vision); Reflect on yourself. Trust the process.]

This retreat is a time for you to take a step back from the work you have been doing — whether it’s in your community, your religious group, school or family. Get grounded in your vision of transformation. Reconnect with the love that is at the center of all justice work. Nurture your body with mindful movement, healing sound, and liberatory touch. Re-experience the joy of passionate creative community. Emerge replenished and even more capable to hold the ground of both Love and Justice.
