Book Study: A Self-Study
Me and White Supremacy

Zoom

 

6 study groups have completed this 8 week program; a 7th group is currently working through this study experience.  We are eager to continue to support the growth engendered through this important work. You have the opportunity to join an upcoming cohort of participants to invest in this learning process.

The Red Shoes eight-week self-study is based on the book Me and White Supremacy by Layla F. Saad.

This book creates access points to the places racism hides: within our beliefs; within the structures that offer us comfort; and within the ideals with which we were raised. 

This study invites a challenging experience.  It's a time to commit to deeper levels of self-examination and active dismantling of our own participation in systems of oppression.

The time is now, the work is hard. Together, in circle, we will transform the inner so it can be reflected in our humanity and in how we live together. 


Register Today if you are interested in joining a new group.

Fees for this class are at your discretion, starting at $20 donation for the 8 week experience. If able to pay more, your contribution will support ongoing anti-racism and racial equity programs.  Scholarships available at request.

Restorative Yoga Class
Weekly 
Wednesdays
Begins April 28

6 pm

 

In Restorative Yoga we mindfully focus on releasing tension and stress and relaxing deeply and thoroughly. As opposed to the strengthening and stretching of a traditional yoga class, Restorative Yoga utilizes stillness to calm the body and mind. 


The benefits of Restorative Yoga are supported by science and include reduced muscle tension, improved sleep, enhanced feelings of well-being, and improved immune function. It can aid in easing chronic pain, potentially lessen symptoms of anxiety, and depression if incorporated as part of a complete treatment plan. Restorative yoga is gentle and safe and requires no previous yoga experience.

This book study will continue until the group feels the material is fully covered.

In this exploration of the Shadow, James Hollis helps us understand the discrepancy between what we say to be our value and the actions we frequently take that are destructive. His aim is to help us become aware of what in us drives our daily choices and actions. Not only does Hollis help us become aware of the inner forces working against us but also of the Shadow working in our culture, our religion and our organizations and throughout history.

Book Sharing: My Grandfather's Blessings

Wednesdays
April 21-May 19

1:30-2:45 pm

 

Life has given us many more blessings than we have allowed ourselves to receive. My Grandfather's Blessings is about how we can recognize and receive our blessings and bless the life in others. Serving others heals us. Through our service we will discover our own wholeness—and the way to restore hidden wholeness in the world.

 

In My Grandfather's Blessings, Rachel Naomi Remen, a cancer physician and master storyteller, uses her luminous stories to remind us of the power of our kindness and the joy of being alive.

Dr. Remen's grandfather, an orthodox rabbi and scholar of the Kabbalah, saw life as a web of connection and knew that everyone belonged to him, and that he belonged to everyone. He taught her that blessing one another is what fills our emptiness, heals our loneliness, and connects us more deeply to life.

 

Facilitated by Debbie Morrill and members of this circle.

Spiritual Journey Circle

Thursdays Ongoing
5-6 pm

  

What story would Eve have told about picking the apple? Why is Pandora blamed for opening the box? And what about the fate of Cassandra who was blessed with knowing the future but cursed so that no one believed her? What if women had been the storytellers?

 

Author Elizabeth Lesser believes that if women’s voices had been equally heard and respected throughout history, humankind would have followed different hero myths and guiding stories—stories that value caretaking, champion compassion, and elevate communication over vengeance and violence. 

 

Cassandra Speaks is about the stories we tell and how those stories become the culture. It’s about the stories we still blindly cling to, and the ones that cling to us: the origin tales, the guiding myths, the religious parables, the literature and films and fairy tales passed down through the centuries about women and men, power and war, sex and love, and the values we live by. This book is about what happens when women are the storytellers too—when we speak from our authentic voices, when we flex our values, when we become protagonists in the tales we tell about what it means to be human. 

 

As a circle of Spiritual Journey seekers, we immerse in diverse spiritual teachings. Share in discussions that enrich life on a deep, personal level.  Return weekly for spiritual connection and community.

 

Facilitated by Wendy Herschman, Executive Director of The Red Shoes, & Spiritual Journey Circle members.
