“I recommend the Belonging Together Facilitation Course for anyone engaged in facilitation, space holding, community building, and change making – there is such a need for each of us to truly evaluate and be accountable for how facilitation practices can and do perpetuate the systems we are actively trying to change. Belonging Together provided me with tools, prompts, and opportunities to step deeper into my own facilitation, experiment with conscious, intentional, heart-led facilitation techniques in a safe space, and confront my own shadows so that I may show up more authentically and fully in this work.”

“The program wasn’t what I expected and also completely blew me away. I think I finally understand what it means to need community in anti-racist work. I appreciated the focus on embodiment and the evolving structure SO much—how powerful. I literally felt in my body what it was like to not seek approval and take accountability for my words and my thoughts and decide for myself what I thought about them. And I felt it get “easier” to do that over the course of the program. I’m still processing the whole thing but I know that was a really really powerful experience and I’m better for it.”
