Flywheel workshops intent on providing a container or space where participants feel that their experience is well held. It focuses on immersion in an environment that can meet you where you are. We realize that we are all dealing with the impacts and social constraints of dominance and oppression. We also embody dignity, power, love, strength, wisdom and courage. Flywheel workshops maximize the positive impact of actions and aspirations which grow out of these basic human qualities.
The workshops develop abolitionist awareness and skill sharing action through building the following capacities:
Techniques (how, what and why)
Using contemplative practice to gain a firm footing we extend that out to each other so we can build a community that overcomes damaged trust and weakened sense of connection. We ground our actions in the empathy, clarity and love nurtured through these contemplative space and practices. That openness, trust and love becomes the foundation for further work with others and skill sharing. Skill sharing creates further trust and better connection between groups. We begin to enjoy the power of our collective labor when we see its results, its impact and its staying power. These ultimately creative practices are the foundation of our abolitionist approach.
To make sure our workshops are available to everyone who needs them, we offer a sliding fee scale.
