$0.00 – $10.00
Held on the last Wednesday of each month, this “recharge and recommit” gathering space focuses on knowing and living out commitments to justice.
What commitments (deep dedications and priorities) guide everyday living?
This question feels essential for everyday living for justice. Too often, though, it remains unanswered or even unarticulated. Without knowing what matters to us deeply—so deeply that it mobilizes, energizes, and guides decision-making—it’s too easy to be on autopilot and to feed the status quo, even when it undermines professed beliefs.
To interrupt the autopilot conditioning that preserves oppression and ongoing violence, this monthly gathering space devotes time to knowing commitments and to understanding what’s implicitly and explicitly driving actions:
- How do I describe my commitments, or what I’m dedicated to in life?
- How well is my life aligned with these commitments?
- What will bring me into greater alignment in the coming month?
Each month we’ll follow the same format: introductions, guided meditation, freewriting, and then conversation for recommitment. Through contemplative practices (guided meditation and freewriting), we’ll bring attention to recharging and use body-based insights to guide a conversation about how we’re experiencing, navigating, and meeting the individual and collective demands of this time.
Together, we’ll consider what’s demanded of us for living relationally and responsibly, for caring for ourselves and others. We’ll focus on how to show up intentionally in both the everyday and the long-haul work of striving toward justice.
