I Have a Story In Me- The Mixed-Race Experience
Join a talking and writing joyous and healing peacemaking circle. The goal of the circle is to share, engage, involve and inspire the voices within the circle. Through a series of interpersonal interactions, writing exercises, participants will explore the gifts, opportunities, challenges, promises and resolutions of our mixed-remixed experience. A goal is to put in writing and expand the literature on the experience, collectively and individually. If desired the community can examine intra, inter, society messages—that have a cumulative effect in the practice and process of conflict resolution, peace and coexistence in our lives.
Participants also have the opportunity to discuss social responsibly and social justice and its impact on their lives. There will be opportunities to talk and write for self-reflections on how issues of oppression, power, poverty, culture, community, supremacy, interconnectedness, and the human spirit impact conflict resolution processes and relationships in our lives.
