An invite from Victoria, who says, “This program is phenomenal, and I hope some of our members can take advantage of the opportunity.”
Beloved Conversations: Within is back for another term of deep learning and spiritual transformation!
Registration for all of our Fall Term Within programs is now open and will continue through August 31st, 2023! You can learn more about all of our programs, including structure, pricing, and schedule, as well as register for the Fall Term on our website: www.meadville.edu/beloved
As a reminder, we structure our Within programs in racial identity caucuses, in recognition of the different spiritual needs and learning goals of people with different experiences of race and racism in our world.
- Gathering Our Selves I and Gathering Our Selves II are our programs designed by and for Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color (BIPOC+), with a focus on deepening our understanding of our own racial identity development, the communities we are grounded in, and our connections to others who share similar experiences, as well as access spiritual sustenance, communal wellbeing, and joy for our journey.
- Un/Learning for Liberation is our program for white people, with a focus on building and strengthening the spiritual skills needed to live our anti-racist values, build authentic relationships of authenticity and accountability with other white people and with our siblings of color, better understand our own racial identities and histories, and eradicate white supremacy culture in our selves, our communities, and our systems.
Both of our programs run two full terms of unique programming, so if you have already taken one term, join us again for a whole new experience of ongoing learning and deepening! We also know how important it is to be in community with other folks actively prioritizing a spiritual commitment to racial justice in their lives.
Remember that registration closes August 31st so take a moment and get it done TODAY! We would also love it if you would invite a friend to join you- or even your whole congregation! Contact us if you would like us to send you a promotional packet over email to use to promote the program in your congregation or community.
As always, we are here if you have questions, need to request a scholarship, or register a group of participants together. You can be in touch over email at belovedconversations@
