“It’s that mind-heart connection that I believe compels us to not just be attentive to all the bright and dazzling things but also the dark and difficult things.” ~ Bryan Stevenson
Everyone in America is affected by race and racism. We are thrilled to offer our 2nd Annual Race in America Learning and Listening Immersion – a journey that supports the understanding of this complex and provocative topic through the lens of the systems, structures, and ideas that keep it alive and well.
Through lecture, discussion, and experience at historically relevant sites in Montgomery and Selma, AL, we will examine the institution of slavery, the Civil War and Jim Crow periods, the Civil Rights movement, and the white supremacy and black liberation movements of today.
Join Nikki Myers and Seane Corn for this 5-day immersion into Montgomery and Selma! Some of the sites we will visit include: the Equal Justice Initiative’s Legacy Museum and National Memorial for Peace & Justice, the Edmund Pettus Bridge on our day trip to Selma, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and more. We will also have some incredible guest speakers joining us.
Our daily yoga practices with Seane and Nikki will serve to integrate our experiences across our bodies, mind, energy, character, and heart.
Race in America is a journey of education, inspiration, healing, and celebration that will ultimately move us closer to our individual and collective healing.
“Deeply challenging and transformative trip that demanded a profound engagement of body, mind, heart, and soul. The facilitation and leadership were skilled, knowledgeable, caring, well-versed in the necessary practices to heighten our experience as well as help to move us through with sensitivity and grace.” -Race in America Learning & Listening Tour Participant, October 2018
“Lifechanging on a cellular level. This trip met my highest expectations! “-Race in America Learning & Listening Tour Participant, October 2018
