DEVELOPING AWARENESS: AN EVENING OF DISCUSSION & PRACTICE
with Afia Yunus & Gina Ward
“Connection to a larger humanity gives people more freedom to express their individuality without fear of jeopardizing belonging.”
– Brene Brown
There is a social crisis in our nation, community and culture today in which comfort and privilege trumps courage and empathy. What is missing is an awareness and often a lack of knowing and knowledge around what is truly happening “over there”. And the creation of the “over there” mindset in and of itself blocks us from seeing our natural fixed perceptions around what we do not know.
Join us as we spend an evening together in discussion around understanding yourself so you can understand others. Leaning into uncomfortable conversations so that you can engage and create belonging. An evening in which you can create an awareness of identity and how it plays a role in your community, near and far.
Monday June 10th 6:30 - 8:30pm / Investment $20, half of all proceeds will go towards Faith in New Jersey
