Join Cedar Landsman of Relational Uprising in learning how to inquire appreciatively into what we may be inclined to judge, reject, exclude, dismiss, or devalue about another’s experience. We see what new information this brings to us, helping us to see beyond our own entrenched perspective.
This activity is meant to be done in conjunction with a relational storytelling and resonance practice, which creates the necessary support to do this activity well. (To learn Resonance Practice, see Healing Justice Podcast Episode 20 with Mark Fairfield.)
Follow along with this worksheet to really dig in to some supported reflection and also revisit later or share with others: Relational Inclusion Worksheet from Relational Uprising https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Kc4b5qUe-590SudKQ4AirmXQZc47O0La
Download the corresponding conversation (32: Bridging Complexity Collectively) to hear Lucién Demaris & Cedar Landsman of Relational Uprising about individualism as a system of oppression; “heroic” cultures of organizing; indigenous traditions of healing in Ecuador; repairing rupture, suspicion, and judgment; and bridging as a form of increasing our ability to hold complexity in our movements.
