- Do you self-identify as a person of color and work within the climate & ecological justice movement?
- Do you feel burnt out and/or overwhelmed and need to recharge in an emotionally safe space where we gently witness and honor each other’s experience?
- Can we build a movement that is rooted in our deepest spiritual values and emotional truths? Can we engage in advocacy such that it is an integral part of our spiritual and emotional growth?
- Do you feel yoga, meditation, and trusting, empathetic emotional connection with others can help release internalized white supremacy and other stresses lodged in our bodies?
If yes, come join us at the stunningly pristine and healing Rocky Mountain Ecodharma Retreat Center (RMERC) for a retreat designed for empowering self-identifying people of color involved in environmental or climate change-making work. You could be a community organizer, healer or healing arts practitioner, educator, activist, climate-mom, climate scientist, journalist, lawyer, author or storyteller. Through silent hikes, meditation, yoga, guided peer-to-peer dialogue in a strong container of emotional safety and trust, gratitude/grief/rage rituals and other group-work, we will explore how we can deepen activism as a spiritual path, learn to honor and transform our emotions through empathy and connection, face the root cause of our suffering, act with deep compassion & courage in these difficult times.
