  • Literary Review and Criticism of Multicultural Books

    This class will focus on the reading, discussion and critique of fiction and non–fiction books about the many cultures that make up America and the world.

  • Intro to Energy Healing

    Recieve an Usui Reiki Level 1 Attunement and learn how to use Reiki to heal yourself and others.

  • Debt Discussion Group

    The subject of the group will be debt, its historic and cultural context as well as how to organize to resist it.

  • Meditation

    I will hold space for you to explore your breath, your mind, and your emotions. Together we will pay attention, non-judgmentally, to the present moment. We will breathe in different ways, direct our focus to different things, and explore various meditation practices. Then, we will share our thoughts and experiences of the practice.

    Everyone is welcome. You do not need any prior experience with meditation, and you don't have to be able to sit cross-legged on the floor.

    Some meditation practices will include movement, visualizations, calling up memories, emitting sound, and even staring into the eyes of a stranger. If any of those things feel like they would take you too far out of your comfort zone for the experience to be beneficial, do not worry. You never have to do anything, ever. Come and just absorb the vibrations!

  • Baltimore Community Accountability Project

     

    How do you define community? Accountability? If violence, harm, or abuse happened to you, you witnessed harm, or you wanted to take accountability for harm you've done, who would you call on? These are just some of the questions the Baltimore Community Accountability Project (BCAP) hopes to explore and build upon. Inspired by groups like Support NY and Philly Stands Up!, and driven by prison abolition and restorative justice principles, BCAP seeks to create structures outside of the state for addressing and eradicating sexual violence. Join us on Sunday 10/22 from __ to ___ for a workshop on these topics, and to get involved!
