FACILITATOR 
TRAINING
January 16-November 13, 2022

Build the wisdom of Holistic Resistance into your anti-racism work in your community.

Become a Holistic Resistance facilitator.

 

Learn how to ask your own questions, organize your own events, emphasize song and embodiment, and facilitate in a way that disrupts racism rather than adds to it.

 

Build your capacity and resilience for asking difficult questions. Build relationship around anti-racism for life. 

 

We will use Zoom video calls, in-person gatherings, and one-on-one phone calls to further our thinking, leadership, and community resilience around this work.

FORMAT

  • WEEKLY VIDEO CALLS: Sunday evening Zoom group calls, 2 hours long, half of them facilitated by Porsha and Aaron, half facilitated by Jennie and Dylan (22 2-hour workshops total). These will all be recorded. 

    • FIRST CALL: April 11, ​4-6, 5-7 PM, or 6-8 PM (depending on group preference)

    • Through September 26, with two weeks off to integrate (TBD)

  • 1-ON-1 PHONE CALLS: 2 hours customized phone consultations with each of the facilitators to work on the material from the training or your own facilitation programs

  • LANDING THE SHIP MONTH: October 2021 is a month for make-up calls and follow ups

  • PRACTICE Facilitation space: Build your facilitator muscles with various co-facilitators in a Wake Up white caucus space that is supported by peers; receive feedback and emotionally support each other as you build community, hone your questions, and practice holding space

  • IN-PERSON INTENSIVES: Because of coronavirus we are putting off in-person intensives for now, though likely we will create an in-person gathering in the High Desert where Aaron and Porsha live and/or in the Pacific Northwest if it becomes safe to do so.

  • ASSIST Holistic Resistance workshops and deep dives: Depending on what Holistic resistance is up to during and after the training, there may be an opportunity to assist Aaron, Porsha, Jennie and Dylan in their programming including a chance to co-faciltiate in these spaces. 

 

We would like you to have attended at least one of these events before considering participating: deep dives, 16 week 1-on-1 program, Disrupting Our Whiteness, or organizing a weekend of Holistic Resistance events with us.
